I Love You So Much It Hurts – Fingerstyle #Ukulele with Chords & Lyrics

I first heard “I Love You So Much It Hurts” on John Prine’s 1995 album, “Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings” and thought for a long time that he had written it. It was actually written by Floyd Tillman in 1948 and reached as high as #6 on the Folk Best Seller Chart. Later in 1948 Jimmy Wakely’s version went to #1 on the Folk Best Seller chart. In 1949 the Mills Brothers recorded it and it went to #8 on the pop chart. Over the years many artists have recorded it including Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, Andy Williams, and Merle Haggard.


It’s in 3/4 time and I used the same pattern I’ve used in so many 3/4 time songs, which is Pattern #13 from my Fingerstyle tutorial. I mix that pattern in with a simple measure that’s just 3rd string, pinch, pinch, with the “pinch” being the 1st and 4th strings with thumb and middle finger on the counts of 2 and 3.

Crazy – Simplified #Ukulele Chords & Lyrics

Written by Willie Nelson in 1961, “Crazy” became Patsy Cline’s signature song and by 1996 it was named as the #1 most played song on jukeboxes by the Amusement and Music Operators Association. Rolling Stone has ranked it as one of the Top 100 songs of all time. For my tutorial, I played it in the key of C and simplified the chord progression somewhat but it still sounds pretty good to me. There are a few quick chord changes but if you stop the video in a couple places where that occurs you should be able to pick up on it pretty easily.
