Billy Strings - Hollow Heart Lyrics

You move around like running water
It seems like you might never settle down
Well, I spent a lifetime waiting for you
While you were runnin' 'round the town

You'll always have a place with me, Dear
A place inside this hollow heart of mine
But it's all right, my little darling
Ain't ready to just keep steppin' down the line

Well, I had a dream that I was dying
I was bleeding while the rain was pouring down
When you appeared inside my dream, Dear
You just left me lyin' on the ground

Won't come home and say you're sorry
You just come on in and crawl your ass in bed
But it's all right, my little darling
You're crawling over someone else, instead

Them pretty eyes are always roving
And I guess you never will be true
This love of ours is a disaster
But I keep holdin' on to you

Seasons come and go while waiting
And my hollow heart is empty all the time
But it's all right, my little Darling
And you'd rather just keep steppin' down the line
But it's all right, my little Darling
And you'd rather just keep steppin' down the line

    It's been said that Billy's name is on every guitar he owns....before he owns them.

  15. Walker Christensen Music

    I love Billy’s solo face XD

  16. Jeff Leblanc

    This guy is the best I’ve heard in a long time he is going to be one of the greats

    Matthew Fyfe

    Every time.Always...

  20. Eric Solveson

    I've been watching YMSB, SCI, Railroad and all the best Bluegrass in the nation for the last 12 years here in Colorado. This guy, is the best new picker of our time. He's the one. Cheers Billy

  21. Brta3as

    Increíble este artista y su banda. Grrrrreat!! tnks from Barcelona <3

  22. DeeOdzta

    Never listened to Bluegrass, but lets face it what these guys play is not your standard Bluegrass. Billy and the gang - living legends. As Joe says, for me I would agree all of what i have seen i liked the most when you guys do this straight out, no studio or such - you sound way better without it :)

  23. Taylor Brown

    This guy is PURE. Can't stop listening.. Those strings on 🔥

  24. Harold Metler

    And guess what, folks! He’s from MICHIGAN!

  25. Michael Ronsonette

    This is why Netflix is still the best website on the 'net. Without it I would have never heard of Billystrings.


    Where on netflix is he?

    Michael Ronsonette

    @Kaolo Sorry I meant Youtube.

  26. Wesley Truax

    Damn that's some mighty fine a pickin and a singin.

  36. J3M

    I can hear so much rock & metal among all of that delicious playing that it simply don't matter what genre it actually is, it's a raw delight to my soul & I love it more each time I hear it. You're all great players but Billy is a playing & writing force to be reckoned with! Thank you for such wonderful music.

    Phillip Neal

    What metal ? What ROCK. This is Appalachia and long before those two genres 😆

    Steven Klaus

    Yes, he is playing Appalachian music, but his playing does have hints of metal. Probably because he was in a metal band previously

  37. Corky B. Grones

    So So So Billy, you have to be So excited & proud to have Jared as you’re mando man. He’s So good!!! And you guys are So tight.

  38. Marisa Miller

  51. Mark Bernhardt

    Great band. Terrible lighting and a far worse audio setup than these guys deserve.

  52. Darian S.J Oechsler

    I was always curios what happended to his ears. I think of Tunnels that broke

    BAiley Furio

    Darian S.J Oechsler he used to have them gauge earrings in his ears. It looks like he didnt stick with it tho and is attempting to let the holes close up.

    Darian S.J Oechsler

    @BAiley Furio yeah thats what I meant with tunnels. Thats the name for these kind of earrings

    BAiley Furio

    Darian S.J Oechsler haha, sorry youngster! I feel old for sure now! Ive never heard that before.

  53. Michael Jones

  58. Yaco21


  59. lee issabella

    Love this band but they need a drummer. just sayin


    Wrong. It’s bluegrass. It doesn’t need drums.

    Ron mercer

    @dfgalvin How many bluegrass bands have drums....or bagpipes?


    Ron mercer None, or almost none. It doesn’t sound right. David Grisman tried it some years ago and it just didn’t work.


    That was referring to drums. I’ve never heard one with bagpipes.

    Ron mercer

    @dfgalvin Just a joke pal.....

  60. Stephen B

    Excited to shoot Billy tonight for Relix!!!!!

  61. Humble Life

    King Billy Strings! Dang...!

  62. Elgin Phelps

    When Billy and band come to California I always go to see and hear them. Nothing finer,

  63. Channing Wade

    ...i'm goin' to say it...this cat is channelin' Rice, Tyminski, Bush, whoever you drops it effortlessly...dude leaves me gape mouthed every time i watch or listen...

  64. Channing Wade

    ...B Strings and the boys just crush it...And they crush it often and thoroughly...

  65. Channing Wade

    ,,,Got Damn! ...these cats just nail it at every frickin' much love and respect for B Strings and the boys...thank ya! thank ya! thank ya! gentlemen

  66. Jesse Lewis

    Anyone who is a bluegrass and or music nut knows that this kid is making a HUGE mark on music history. Respect to all the genres of music and their history... Billy is one of those rare ones that change everything and only come once or twice in a lifetime.

    Kirk Scobey

    Jesse Lewis I agree. He's got me listening to my Dads old bluegrass albums again. More. For someone so young his songwriting is really deep apart from his superb musicianship. He's like the Stevie Ray Vaughan of bluegrass pickers!!!

  67. Jim Jones

    To think I saw this band in Sault Ste Marie Michigan with less that 100 people in the Theater Come back to Blissfest

  68. jesse bongo

    Wonder if more will buy their music now Billy has the 33 tattoo , every chance his fellow masons will !

    jesse bongo

    @Jaden Miller ....perhaps you'll wake up some time.

    Ivan Eccles

    Can I ask what is a 33 tattoo? I'm from Australia

    jesse bongo

    @Ivan Eccles .....Australia like almost all countries is run and controlled by freemasons and this includes all aspects of the entertainment industry ( if you're not in the club you dont make it to the top no matter how talented ). There are 33 degrees ( levels of hierarchy ) in the " brotherhood ".

  70. Сергей Сафронов

    Это просто блестяще!!!!

  71. Rob Cedar

    Bluegrass. Newgrass.
    Billy Strings...

  72. Steve H

    Yessir, hitting the nail on the head.

  73. quartzimaging

    Billy Strings has matured into the craft and tradition very quickly. Glad to see him staying with (mostly) straight ahead bluegrass and traditional instruments. Let's hope he does not devolve into another over-amped strings-on-steroids abomination like too many other jammy bands (looking at you Railroad Earth and Greensky Bluegrass).

    Rob Cedar

    That's where he's headin. And he ain't forgetting where he came from.

  74. TheGravygun

    Screech on Banjo


    he is on point I must say

  75. Jackie Weems

    What a talented group of musicians! Billy Strings is a superstar and one of of the most talented people I have ever heard. Enjoy listening to him everyday. I’ve been around a long time (73 years) and he is absolutely at the top of my favorite entertainers. I guess he would be second to Elvis.

    Pat Coleman

    me too old man :) gotcha beat by 5 ~~... talent coming out from all his pours ! and he shows he loves what he is doing !!

    Brad Rousseau

    Me too old man I'm in my 60 th winter. To watch this guy change bluegrass has been a huge creation for me. I'm just excited as hell for this guy.

    Brad Rousseau

    Hey pat. F. Kids good.

  76. Nathan Morgan

    Hands down best version of long forgotten dream I've heard by them

  77. Joe Bieniecki

    Save your money Billy. Never pay for studio time again. Just show up places play a half dozen songs and record them in one take. Simply amazing. Pay attention folks this is something special.


    I am a man of constant sorrow 😂

    Roy Jenkins

    Amen his a special talent . God Bless

    Michael Jones

    How can you not like this and not like it?

    Jorma Spaziano

    Its that them there Soggy Bottom Boys?

    Albert Schroter

    no lie detected

  78. The Grateful Brad


    I pray the good Lord protect these guys and lead them not into temptation!

  79. vaiz4lvrs

    Billy for President

  80. Mike Lenowsky

    So great! We're lucky there's so much awesome music being made these days in a variety of genre's... especially bluegrass.

  81. Vicki Brouwer

  82. fishnjim

    Straight-up Badass

  83. Mark Woods

    Ben Henry

    Fantastic, thank you!

  87. KC Lange

    You really got such a great act as Billy Strings and only got to keep them for such a short time. I was so hoping they’d have done a special extended set for y’all. Legend in the making 👆

  88. David Sholts
