Hurt (Harmonica Tab)

"Hurt" by Johnny Cash is a powerful and emotionally charged song that reflects on the struggles and regrets of the narrator as he nears the end of his life. The lyrics convey a sense of introspection and vulnerability as the narrator reflects on the pain and mistakes he has experienced throughout his life. He expresses feelings of guilt, remorse, and longing for redemption. The song touches on themes of mortality, loss, and the passage of time, as well as the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Musically, "Hurt" features a stripped-down arrangement, with Cash's weathered vocals accompanied by sparse acoustic guitar and haunting piano melodies.
