It Hurts Me
          It Hurts Me â€" Elvis Presley
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Elvis Presley 
It Hurts Me (1964)
(Joy Byers/Charles E. Daniels)

B-Side of “Kissin’ Cousins”
Now on: " Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 4" 
          and other Greatest Hits collections

Re-recording on: "Memories: The '68 Comeback Special [Disc 1]"

Elvis obviously liked this song, as he recorded it twice. The first version
was released as a B-side in 1964. He re-recorded it in 1968 for his TV special 
"Elvis". This second version is transposed down one semi-tone to Bb and
truncated: the last verse and the coda are left out because it is part of the 
so-called "Road Medley" ((Nothingville / Big Boss Man / Let Yourself Go / 
It Hurts Me / Guitar Man / Little Egypt / Trouble).

About the artist behind It Hurts Me:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
