(Crane / Jacobs)


Information:

Hurt was written by Jimmie Craine and Al Jacobs and first recorded by Roy Hamilton (Epic 9086) in 1954. His recording was a #7 rhythm & blues hit. In 1961 Timi Yuro took her version of Hurt to #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Clyde Otis produced her recording. Other popular versions of Hurt include those by Little Anthony and The Imperials (DCP 1154) in 1966, a 1967 Italian version (“A Chi”) by Fausto Leali on RiFi Records, and by The Manhattans (Columbia 10140) in 1975. Leali’s release sold a million copies worldwide.

 

Elvis recorded Hurt on the night of February 5-6, 1976, at Graceland. His single release was a million-seller and had a 11-week stay on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, peaking at #28. It did much better on the country chart, reaching #6. Hurt was sung on the 1977 TV Special Elvis In Concert.


Lyrics:

I'm so hurt to think that you lied to me

I'm hurt way down deep inside of me
You said our love was true
And we'll never, never part
Now you've got someone new
And it breaks my heart

I'm hurt, much more than you'll ever know
Yes darling, I'm so hurt
Because I still love you so
Even though you hurt me
Like nobody else could ever do
I would never hurt, hurt you
