Johnny Cash - 'Hurt"


The first time I heard this song, I almost cried and that was without the words or even knowing who sang it.
Andrew was quietly playing and I asked, what's that song?  He smiled and told me while he played, then he showed me.

Sometimes the electric amplification drills through my brain as Andrew plays in the afternoon but not today.  Today he is playing Hurt and I type with cold chills as the beauty of the music envelopes me.

From Gregorian Chant lovers through Classical, Country, Blues, Jazz and Rock followers, you have to appreciate the message of this song...and feel the sadness.

Hurt is one of my favourite Johnny Cash song. The words and the sound of his voice are haunting.

Hard to believe it was one of the last songs he did, but he did a great job.
