Guitar Chords Avril Lavigne "Everybody Hurts"

I still think of Avril Lavigne as a relatively new young artist, so was amazed when checking on Wikipedia that her first album "Let Go", which included "Complicated" and "I'm With You" was released in 2002. Yup, nine years ago!

In that time, I have worked out easy chords and lyrics versions to 8 of Avril's songs, including the two mentioned above, with "When You're Gone" being the last one posted, back in 2007, on my Avril Lavigne song chords page.

Haven't heard much from Ms. Lavigne since then, but just heard her new single "Everybody Hurts" on the radio, and it sounds like she's back to top form.

The song is in the key of F#/G#m, with chords being G#m, E, B and F#. As these are quite difficult chords for early learning guitar players, I transposed the song to the key of D/Em, which produces a much more manageable set of chords: Em, C, G and D. Play with a capo on the 4th fret to bring the song back to it's original key.

I have posted my simplified chords and lyrics version of "Everybody Hurts" to my Avril Lavigne Guitar Chords page at
