Randy Travis later recollected on Twitty’s response to the song’s popularity. “We were working shows with Conway after it was a #1 song for us, and he remembered it; and for a while every time Lib (Travis’ manager and later wife) would walk up to him, she’d just say “I Told You So.” It got to the point that every time he’d see her coming he’d say “I don’t want to hear it.”

Randy Travis – I Told You So Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Suppose I called you up tonight and told you that I love you
And suppose I said I want to come back home
And suppose I cried and said I think I’ve finally learned my lesson
And I’m tired of spendin’ all my time alone
[Verse 2]
If I told you that I realized you’re all I ever wanted
And it’s killin’ me to be so far away
Would you tell me that you love me too and would we cry together?
Or would you simply laugh at me and say
[Chorus]
I told you so, oh, I told you so
I told you someday you’d come crawlin’ back and asking me to take you in
I told you so, but you had to go
But now I’ve found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again
[Verse 3]
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 feelin’? Would we laugh and talk for hours?
The way we did when our love first began
[Verse 4]
Would you tell me that you’ve missed me too and that you’ve been so lonely
And you’ve waited for the day that I returned
And we’d live and love forever, and that I’m your one and only
Or would you say the tables finally turned?
[Chorus]
Would you say I told you so, oh, I told you so
I told you someday you’d come crawlin’ back and asking me to take you in
I told you so, but you had to go
But now I’ve found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again
[Outro]
And now I’ve found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again
