Love Hurts

Words & Music:

Boudleaux Bryant (Nazareth)


     G           Em          C          D

Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars

    G         Em       C        D

Any heart not tough or strong enough

   G             B7    Em            G7

To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain.

C              Am        D

Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain.

     G      F   C         G

Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts.


I'm young, I know, but even so

I know a thing or two I learned from you.

I really learned a lot, really learned a lot.

Love is like a flame, it burns you when it's hot.

Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts.


Em                  B7   Em    B7      Em      B7    Em

Some fools think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness.

A7                                               D       F7

Some fools fool themselves, I guess, they're not foolin' me.

G               B7      Em            G7

I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true.

C              Am          D

Love is just a lie made to make you blue.

     G      F   C         G      F   C         G

Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts.
