Heart of Stone
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

This heart of stone sure is missing you
Sure is wishing you were back where love belongs
This heart of stone has not forgotten you
But broke while trying to pretend that it was strong

Memories have made its will grow tired and weak
Silently it turned from being bold to meek
'Til finally it gave into a sad defeat
Aching more and more with every fragile beat


Loneliness has slowly stripped it of its pride
Leaving just an empty well here behind
Without a hope of any way it could survive
Stranded there alone and simply left to die

Another little movie, another little story by Dwight.  Nothing can take away from his voice and the emotions his songs arouse.  One of the greatest country singers and writers ever!

Country music the way it should sound.

It's 2019 and Dwight's music still beats the country music today! Keeping it real in Dallas TX!

Dwight's songs capture the essence of a lot of pure country. I think I hear Patsy Cline in there. 


I hear doo wop and country and old-time dreams of young people and old as well. Its all American.


Dwight is perhaps one of the purest country performers with that twang and old country beat you find in most of his music. But when he takes his hat off, he's just an ordinary guy.

Our Boy nails it again . One of his best .

I Love this man Dwight Yoakam
