Hurt  Johnny Cash

[Am]      I [C]hurt my[D]self to[Am]day to [C]see if [D]I still feel[Am]
I [C]focus o[D]n the[Am] pain the [C]only [D]thing that's [Am]real
The[C] needle t[D]ears a ho[Am]le the [C]old fam[D]iliar [Am]sting
Try to [C]kill it [D ]all aw[Am]ay but I re[C]member [D]every thing  [G](4bars)

Chorus (each chords 4 bars)

[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]                    [G]                    [G]                    
And you could have it all my empire of dirt

[Am]                    [F]                    [G]                    [Am]          [C]        [D]                    
I will let you down, I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns on my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair
Beneath the stain of time the feeling disappears
You are someone else I am still right here


[Am]                    [F]                    [G]                    [G]    
If I could start again a million miles away

[Am]                    [F]                    [G]                    [Am]    
I would keep myself I would find a way

I really like this version of the song.
You can feel the pain and sense of lost Johnny was experiencing when he did this.
NIN, Trent, thank you for letting jc do this song.
