About Nothing Ever Hurt Me (Half as Bad as Losing You)

"Nothing Ever Hurt Me (Half as Bad as Losing You)" is a novelty song written by Bobby Braddock and recorded by American country singer George Jones. The song was recorded at a blistering speed and contains tongue twisting lyrics about a country boy for whom nothing ever went right. The song would reach #7 on the charts. In the liner notes to the 1982 Jones compilation Anniversary – 10 Years of Hits, producer Billy Sherrill writes that Jones rarely performed the song live because he could never remember all the words. Jones would record several more Braddock compositions, including "He Stopped Loving Her Today."

Well, I've had a splittin' headache from my eyebrows to my backbone
Arthritis, appendicitis, Bright's disease and gall stones
Bleedin' ulcers, ingrown toe nails, swollen adenoids
The Asian flu a time or two and inflamed vocal chords
I've had a toothache so severe my jawbone split in two
But nothing's ever hurt me half as bad as losing you

Well, I've had the lit end of a cigar pressed against my belly
Whupped upon with a crowbar till my eyeball turned to jelly
Accidentally nailed my index finger to the wall
Cut off half my toes and soaked my foot in alcohol
Well I've had my pelvis ruptured by an angry kangaroo
But nothing's ever hurt me half as bad as losing you

Well, it's not because you measure fifty, twenty, forty-four
It's surely not because you own a chain of liquor stores
It's not because your daddy is the richest man in town
It's just that I've grown used to you and having you around

I've had my parents tell me son we don't love you at all
I've seen my sister's name written on a washroom wall
My best friend set my barn on fire and burned my horse to death
I went out with a girl who told me, "George you've got bad breath"
Last week I drew a crowd when I went to the city zoo
But nothing's ever hurt me half as bad as losing you

Well, I've had a splittin' headache from my eyebrows to my backbone
Arthritis, appendicitis, Bright's disease and gall stones
Bleedin' ulcers, ingrown toe nails, swollen adenoids
The Asian flu a time or two and inflamed vocal chords
Well I've had a toothache so severe my jawbone split in two
But nothing's ever hurt me half as bad as losing you
