  • What's goin' on, mama?
    Something 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 worrying 'bout me
    You've been losin' sleep since '93

    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

    Oh, by the way, mama, didn't mean to ramble on ya
    How's everything back at home?
    Yeah, how's that garden comin'?
    Is dad still doing 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

    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

    Yeah, I know you've been worrying 'bout me
    You've been losing sleep since '93
    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
    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
    I thought you should know, thought you should know
    I thought you should know, thought you should know, thought you should know Writer/s: Miranda Lambert, Morgan Wallen, Nicolle Galyon
