"Stupid Boy"
"I Told You So"

"I Told You So" is a song written and recorded by Australian country music artist Keith Urban. It was released in May 2007 as the third single from his album Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing. This song is used in the Rock Band Country Track Pack.

Song content

The song tells of a man who has just met a lover with whom he recently split up. Upon encountering her, the singer begs for her to return, provided that she doesn't apologize for her actions. ("Please, just come back home / No, don't say that you're sorry / And I won't say “I told you so”").

"I Told You So" features a Celtic influence,[1][2][3] in part due to the use of Uilleann pipes. Snare drums are also used heavily throughout, most notably between the second chorus and bridge. According to the album's liner notes, Urban plays several instruments on the song, including electric guitar, acoustic guitar, ganjo, bouzouki, mandolin, and percussion. He also sings all of the vocals.

The radio edit features a shortened bridge, as well as a slightly truncated outro.
