Nothing
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I couldn't change your heart
I couldn't change your mind
So I just had to learn to live with
This empty life you left behind

You didn't try to hear
You didn't try to see
No, you just stared right
Through the teardrops
Like there was nothing left of me

Nothing but sorrow
Nothing but pain
Nothing but memories that
Whisper your name
Nothing but sadness
Nothing but fear
Nothing but silence is heard
Around here

Bridges were burned, oh
Lessons were learned
Promises made that were broken
Tender lies softly spoken

You didn't try to hear
You didn't try to see
You just stared right
Through the teardrops
Like there was nothing left of me

Nothing but sorrow (nothing but sorrow)
Nothing but pain (nothing)
Nothing but memories that
Whisper your name
Nothing but sadness (nothing but sadness)
Nothing but fear (nothing)
Nothing but silence is heard
Around here, heard around here

Nothing but sorrow (nothing but sorrow)
Nothing but pain (nothing)
Nothing but memories that
Whisper your name, whisper your name
Nothing but sadness (nothing but sadness)
Nothing but fear (nothing)
Nothing but silence is heard
Around here, heard around here
I couldn't change your heart

Everyone has a opinion....many of DWIGHTS songs get defined as not COUNTRY....even back then.....MANY have been defined as ROCK A BILLY...or BAKERSFIELD sound..etc...or in your case memphis soul...

.Dwights music is like no other....that is for sure. So call it what you want..

.BUT this song was played on "country radio stations"..was put on the COUNTRY BILLBOARD CHARTS.... and the VIDEO your watching was televised on the channel "Country Music Television" or CMT for short... .
So you can call it whatever you want or wish.....doesnt change the facts...

... And, what is the MUSIC that is played on country radio today....?
Whats that called??? I say most is generic...it is S.H.I.T...music..
Because..it isnt even close to this...OR the sound of ANY country music of the 80s and 90s...many country songs today sound like morphed RAP...
and that is the point.....that....I WAS making to begin with....READ IT AGAIN....

There never were any imitators of Dwight trying to copy his voice or music. No one even tried because it would be impossible
ONE OF A KIND is an understatement.

Bobby Stewart

Bak in my Honkytonk days 99 20 I could shoot pool n dance n not loose . To DY

Joyce Pierce
