Morgan Wallen Thought You Should Know Lyrics

Verse 1

What’s goin’ on, Mama?
Somethin’ just dawned on me
I ain’t been home in some months
Been chasin’ songs and women
Makin’ some bad decisions
God knows I’m drinkin’ too much
Yeah, I know you’ve been worryin’ ’bout me
You’ve been losin’ sleep since ’93

Chorus

I thought you should know
That all those prayers you thought you wasted on me
Must’ve finally made their way on through
I thought you should know
I got me a new girl down there in Jefferson City, and
She lets me fish whenever I want to
Yeah, I’m still proud of where I came from
Still your only damn son
Can you believe I’m on the radio?
Just thought you should know
Thought you should know
Thought you should know

Verse 2

Oh, by the way, Mama
Didn’t mean to ramblе on ya
How’s everything back at home?
Yеah, how’s that garden comin’?
Is dad still doin’ dumb shit?
And how’d he keep you this long?
Yeah, I’m sorry that I called you so late
I just miss you but anyways

Chorus

I thought you should know
That all those prayers you thought you wasted on me
Must’ve finally made their way on through
I thought you should know
I got me a new girl down there in Jefferson City, and
She lets me fish whenever I want to
Yeah, I’m still proud of where I came from
Still your only damn son
Can you believe I’m on the radio?
Just thought you should know
Thought you should know
Thought you should know

Bridge

Yeah, I know you’ve been worryin’ ’bout me
You’ve been losin’ sleep since ’93

Chorus

I thought you should know
That all those prayers you thought you wasted on me
Must’ve finally made their way on through
I thought you should know
That I really like this girl down in Jefferson City, and
It turns out she’s a lot like you
Yeah, I’m still proud of where I came from
Still your only damn son
The bus is leavin’ so I gotta roll
Just thought you should know
Thought you should know
Thought you should know

Outro

I thought you should know
Thought you should know
I thought you should know
Thought you should know
Thought you should know
