C      D      Am         C      D       Am
I hurt myself today   to see if I still feel
C       D      Am         C       D        Am
I focus on the pain   the only thing that's real
C        D        Am          C      D      Am
The needle tears a hole   the old familiar sting
     C       D      Am           C       D       G          
Try to kill it all away   but I remember everything


Am          F             C        G
What have I become?   My sweetest friend
Am          F           C          G
Everyone I know   goes away in the end
Am                     F         C       G
And you could have it all   My empire of dirt
Am              F             C        G
I will let you down   I will make you hurt


C           D        Am         C      D     Am
I wear this crown of thorns   upon my liars chair
C          D        Am    C     D     Am
Full of broken thoughts   I cannot repair
C           D         Am         C       D      Am
Beneath the stains of time   the feeling disappears
C         D      Am    C     D     G
You are someone else   I am still right here


G D Am -x4- -till end-
If I could start again   a million miles away
I would keep myself   I would find a way

guiltyegg

callmekevin stan???

Hope to Change this later

No way. Have you guys seen peepeepoopoo or 21 recently? Asking for a friend?

SugaCronch

I don’t know about anyone else but i prefare to play Am instead of g at the end of the chorus

Hey

I just wanna say that hurt is not by Johnny cash, it’s by 9 inch nails.

ukulelefriend

This is the cover of that song by 9 inch nails done by Johnny Cash, many other covers of songs are labeled this way on this website :)

Dravez

even is the same song, chords changes depending on the singer, so if your voice is more like JC, you will look for the JC version.

Michael Druce

This comment is so late to the table but it sound so good if you play each chord with plucking the G and then C string followed by both the outer strings. Sounds so nice!

Michael Druce

oh, ans then for the chorus and the g chord just before it you strum as usual

Maddie

I did DDUUDU for the strumming pattern :) hope this helps!

Blueliketheukulele

There is one rule in the ukulele world.

Whenever you search for the strumming pattern of a song there will be at least one person who recommends the DDUUDU pattern and will NOT fit at all if you try it.

Honestly, what do I do wrong? It never fits the melody but it always gets recommended in the comments.

corywong

I only use that strumming pattern for the chorus, you just have to experiment with slower or faster strumming and singing. In the verse i just pluck c g e

yogi

i like to end it G D F Am

Dejavu

Use Am for the last cord. Sounds great that way

Eliana

I used a chord on the last word

YaelmyNaem

When 9 Inch Nails heard Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt, they said it was his song after that. Obviously it was still owned by their label, lol, but I don’t think they mind people recognizing it as Johnny :)

ukulelefriend

Personally, I like to play this song by picking the C, E, and A strings with each chord
