Hearts of Stone
The Fontane Sisters Lyrics


Hearts made of stone
Will never break
For the love you have for them
They just won't take
You can ask them please
Please, please, please break
And all of your love
Is there to take

Yes, hearts of stone
Will cause you pain
Although you love them
They'll stop you just the same
You can ask them please
Please, please, please break
And all of your love
Is there to take

But they'll say no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
Everybody knows
I thought you knew
Hearts made of stone

Yes, hearts of stone
Will cause you pain
Although you love them
They'll stop you just the same
You can ask them please
Please, please, please break
And all of your love
Is there to take

But they'll say no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
Everybody knows
I thought you knew
Hearts made of stone

“Hearts Of Stone” was written by Eddie Ray and Rudy Jackson it was released first by the Jewels in September 1954, but the Hit Song by the Charms doing the 5th cover released their version in November 1954 and it topped the R&B chart and reached #15 on the pop chart , the Fontaine Sisters recorded their version the 7th cover in December 1954, that topped the pop chart.
Elvis Presley never recorded Hearts Of Stone in the studio or released it as a single he only sang this song Live on 15 January 1955 and that was unreleased for 44 years when it appeared for the first time on his “Sunrise” Compilation Album on 9 February 1999.

Pete Michael

This is the version I remember when I was 14. Just heard Otis Williams version and was completely unaware of its existence.

Me too, Pete. I was 14 when I bought the 45 single and still have it. But, the parts I liked best were the two sax solos, when the rhythm section switched to 4-to-the-bar and made it swing.

Pie

Personally prefer the Otis Williams version but can’t deny this one is peppy

Wolfgang

Having never heard this song before I vote for this version to be the most pleasant one.

Linda Easley

I honestly was surprised that a group like the Fontaine Sisters would do a jazzy rock n roll rendition of this song.
I have heard at least one other version of Hearts of Stone which came out in 1955 and was slower. I consider this the definitive version 👍

JIMOTOOLE1949

A cover of The Charms, who were a cover of the Jewels' original version. That essentially made this record a cover of a cover.

Don Scott

I love it!

Justin Almorado

And the rock and roll era begins

hillcresthiker

This did NOT begin Rock n Roll and the authentic recording of this record was the Jewels version
