“Unwound” is a song written by Dean Dillon and Frank Dycus, and recorded by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in April 1981 as his major label debut single and served as the lead single from his debut album Strait Country. It peaked at No. 6 on the United States Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and is Strait’s first top-ten hit.

Dean Dillon and Frank Dycus originally wrote the song for Johnny Paycheck, but Paycheck was in jail at the time. Record producer Blake Mevis drove over to Dillon’s house in 1980, where Dillon and Dycus were writing songs on the front porch, and asked them if they had any new songs for a ‘new kid from Texas.’ Since Paycheck would not be using it, they gave the song to Mevis for George Strait. Dillon has gone on to write or co-write over 40 songs that have been recorded by Strait.

George Strait – Unwound Lyrics

Give me a bottle of your very best
‘Cause I’ve got a problem I’m gonna drink off my chest.
I’m gonna spend the night getting down
‘Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger
Just come unwound.

[Chorus:]
That woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound.
She kicked me out of the house and tonight I’m whiskey bound.
Yeah I’m gonna be the drunkest fool in town
‘Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger
Just come unwound.

Well she packed my bags and opened up the door.
And I got a feeling she didn’t want me ’round no more.
She caught me in a lie when I was messin’ around,
And that woman that I had wrapped around my finger
Just come unwound.

[Chorus]

And that woman that I had wrapped around my finger
Just come unwound.
