SteelDrivers, The - You Put The Hurt On Lyrics

There's a light on in the kitchen
Where I've been losin' sleep
It seems to me since you've been gone
The dark got twice as deep

My mind tries to forget you
But my heart comes back for more
'Cause you put the hurt on me
Like I never felt before

Don't need a guilty conscience
To follow me around
Don't need no one to tell me why
The rain keeps pourin' down

Don't need another dark cloud
Hangin' round outside my door
'Cause you put the hurt on me
Like I never felt before

The flames have turned to ashes
But there's still some embers left
Missin' you is harder than
This whiskey on my breath

I never had a memory cut
A path as wide as yours
'Cause you put the hurt on me
Like I never felt before

The flames have turned to ashes
But there's still some embers left
Missin' you is harder than
This whiskey on my breath

I never had a memory cut
A path as wide as yours
'Cause you put the hurt on me
Like I never felt before

You put the hurt on me

SteelDrivers, The You Put The Hurt On Comments
  1. Gabriel Micheal

    If you try and learn to sing this song, you will have a new respect for this man. His timing and settle melodies/embelishments that make just him and a guitar so interesting are both most original and complex, and are unmatched in any genre. Greatest vocalist of all time as far as I'm concerned.

  2. Mike Beasley

    I vote for a new music genre! CHRIS STAPLETON.

  3. Apex floor designs LLC/Jason Morgan

    I'm sitting in that light in the kitchen right now. Ugh

  4. spacewrangler68

    I love CS but I have to start calling this out: in this song I hear a melodic rip-off of "Seven Spanish Angels", of the late great Ray Charles and the living legend Willie Nelson


    The chord progression in that song is entirely different from this one.

  5. David Henderson

    best song ever written!!!!!!!!!! tf what your thinking!!!!!

  6. Nerrel Crowl

  7. bigmike937

  8. Bryan Lewis

    Chris's vocals spot on the accompanying music is true as it can be to its roots. I was raised on country fell in love with rock. This touches my musical core.

  9. angie Stiltner

    I agree Chris is a great singer but this is Gary, Chris had left before this recording

    EJ Nova

    This is undoubtedly Chris.

    josh scott

    definitely not Gary. he is good, but he ain't no Chris.

    Mr Breeze

    +finershiner1 - Song was recorded and released in 2009 on Reckless... and if you can't tell the difference between Chris and Gary then stay the hell out of youtube dumbass

    Sonya Grissom

    Mr Breeze well put

    Po Diddly

    finershiner1 bullshit. Gary sucks. This is chris


    I cannot wait to see him in Cleveland........ This song is a Heartclincher, IF you have ever been in pain from a women, Let me correct this, IF you even suffer from the blackness of depression, this song can take your life ! so go forward with care, Chris has a voice uniquely unheard since the days of real country...FINALLY COUNTRY HAS A HERO...NOT A CRAP SINGER

    Mr Breeze

    shut up runt

  17. Brian Butler

    I have been a music fan since I was 5 years old,I have never heard a male voice like his! He is best male singer alive


    +Brian Butler Hes blessed with some Merl in that voice a smooth whiskey roll!! Chris knows how to connect with his writing. Nothing compares to a singer songwriter. They reveal their soul.

    Brian Butler

    @MusicHeartofMine2012 I have never been a Bluegrass or Country music fan,I agree Chris connects with his writing,I had an opportunity to see him live,and although I wasn't around when the Beatles first performed in the States,the hysteria that ensued,but I did see MJ in concert and again hysteria,but at the concert I saw Chris in gave me chills and I actually felt as though I was going to pass out especially during Sometimes I Cry,AMAZING
