Heart of Stone Lyrics. I grew up near what they call the flats Ain't too many people knows where its at Can't hear the highway can't see a way out I guarantee it ain't nothin worth cryin about. Daddy left us all back in '91 Left us all wonderin what it was we done Id stand in the yard and stare down the road I guess i must have missed how i just dont know. Got the broken promises Got the broken home Dont break yourself on a Heart of stone. Well I call Momma every now and then To say I'm comin' home but I don't know when Well I ran into Daddy but it's been so long I don't tell Momma, I don't let on.

Chris Knight's "Heart of Stone" is his strongest set since his Decca debut Chris Knight, which is saying quite a bit because his recent The Trailer Tapes recorded before that CD were so stunning & stark that it is hard to top. In fact, Knight has consistently recorded excellent albums such as Enough Rope &The Jealous Kind. Chris slows the beat slightly even as he keeps the amps revved on "Something to Keep Me Going" that sounds like it could fit on a Tom Petty album or one by the Byrds, "Still got your photograph in my wallet; Don't know why I don't throw it away; I used to take it out & look at you to get me. through the day; Now I realize when I look in your eyes, I never really knew you at al. Maria" (Knight) - 4:34.
Chris Knight (born June 24, 1960) is an American singer-songwriter from Slaughters, Kentucky. In addition to releasing solo records of his own material, Knight has had a successful career writing songs that have been recorded by Confederate Railroad, John Anderson, and Randy Travis among others. Knight was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Knight grew up in Slaughters, Kentucky. His extended family lives in the same area of Kentucky. Knight has three brothers and a sister. His father was a pipe liner.
His sixth album, Heart of Stone, changes that. Here, Knight’s stunning narratives of the hardships of working-class life don’t just function as remarkable standalone stories as they have on his previous records; instead, there’s a real coherence and a definite focus on a common theme of keeping one’s head, no matter how hard times may get. The threat of an economic downturn, Knight argues on Hell Ain’t Half Full, is not a valid excuse for cooking meth in a tub in the basement, while the title track finds its narrator condemning his father for abandoning his family
