This song was very popular back in 1988 that it reached the top of the Billboard hot country singles & tracks and won an American Music Award for Favorite Country Single.

I first heard it being sung by Carrie Underwood. Apparently she made her cover version in her latest album, Carnival Ride. I fell in love instantly in the moment I first heard the chorus. Although I am not much of a fan of country music, but I loooove this song. In fact, it is those very classic countri-y notes and melody that keep me listening to it over and over again. BTW, we can hear Vince Gill backing up Carrie’s vocal beautifully in chorus section.

Lyrics:

Suppose I called you up tonight
And told you that I love you
And suppose I said I wanna come back home
And suppose I cried and said I think I finally learned my lesson
And I’m tired of spending all my time alone
If I told you that I realize you’re all I ever wanted
And it’s killing me to be so far away
Would you tell me that you love me to
And when we cry together
Would you simply laugh at me and say

I told you so
Oh, I told you so
I told you someday you’d come crawling back and asking me to take you in
I told you so
But you had to go
Now I found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again

If I got down on my knees and told you I was yours forever
Would you get down on yours too and take my hand
Would we get that old time feeling
Would we laugh and talk for hours
The way we did when our love first began
Would you tell me that you miss me too
And that you’ve been so lonely
And that you’ve waited for the day that I returned
And we live and love forever
And that I’m your one and only
Would you say the tables finally turn

Would you say I told you so
Oh, I told you so
I told you someday you’d come crawling back and asking me to take you in
I told you so
But you had to go
Now I found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again

Now I found someone new and you will never break my heart in two again
