Sung by Pigpen with the Grateful Dead from 1966 to 1972, but never revived after his death.

(1) Pigpen sometimes sings "'Cause the man you've been loving ..."

(2) sometimes "You love him a little more now child, when you know you ought to love him less"

(3) sometimes "... see the way you've been pushed around"

Lyrics

You said you was hurtin', almost lost your mind
'Cause the man you love hurt you all the time (note 1)
But when things go wrong, wrong with you
It hurts me too

You love him a little more, when you should love him less (note 2)
Why pick up behind him and take his mess
'Cause when things go wrong, wrong with you
It hurts me too

You love another man, little girl you know I love you
But you love him and stick to him just about like glue
'Cause when things go wrong, wrong with you
It hurts me too

Well he'd better leave you, or you'd best put him down
'Cause you know I just can't stand to see, see you pushed around (note 3)
'Cause when things go wrong, wrong with you
It hurts me too

  • It Hurts Me Too
