Roy Hamilton was born in 1929. As a young man he sang in church and in a gospel quartet, The Searchlight Singers. He was discovered singing in a club in Newark, New Jersey, in 1953. His original recording of "hurt" was released on Epic 9086 and reached number eight on the R&B chart. Hamilton released more than 50 singles during his career, which was cut short in July 1969 when he suffered a stroke. Roy Hamilton is the typical big ballad singer that Elvis really liked. In addition to "Hurt," Elvis also recorded "You'll Never Walk Alone," Hamilton's first record and a major success in 1954.

I'm hurt,
to think that you lied to me
hurt,
way down deep inside of me
You said your love was true
And we'd, never part
Now you want someone new
And it breaks my heart

Ohoho I'm hurt,
much more than you'll ever know
hurt
Because I still love you so

But even though you hurt me
Like no one else could do
I would never never hurt, hurt you

I'm so hurt,
to think that you lied to me
I'm hurt,

You said our love was true
And we'd never, never part
Now you've want someone new
And it breaks my heart

ohoho I'm hurt,
much more than you'll ever know
Yes darling, I'm so hurt
Because I still love you so

But even though you hurt me
Like nobody else could ever do
I would never ever hurt, hurt you
