Is a song written by David Anthony, and recorded by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in December 1985 as the second and final single from his album Something Special. The song peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks and the Canadian RPM charts.

 

 

Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song an A grade, calling it “so laid back that it’s easy to miss the craftsmanship.” He goes on to say that Strait “channels a young Merle Haggard, a slow western swing arrangement surrounds him with warmth.

On the original 45 record, it was paired with another good song: The B-Side was “Dance Time in Texas” from the pen of Peter Rowan.




George performs the songs: Last Time the First Time, Amarillo By Morning, Lefty’s Gone, You’re Something Special To Me, The Fireman, The Chair, and Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind.

George Strait – You’re Something Special to Me Lyrics

[Verse 1]
As I hold you close tonight
Hear what I say
There is no doubt
It is love alright
Because I have never felt this way

An angel is what you are
And now I see
You are not just someone else
You are something special to me

[Chorus]
Every man has a dream
And you made mine come true
How it happened I do not know or care
I am just happy I found you

Wrapped in the arms of love
Is where I will be
For all the world to see
You are something special to me

[Chorus]

[Outro]
It is all such a mystery
You are something special to me
