  • I shoulda known it
    I shoulda seen
    Leave it to you
    To treat me mean

    Every promise, was just a runaround
    I shoulda known it
    Yeah you're gonna let me down
    Well it's over now you see
    It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

    I shoulda known it
    Hard to believe
    It was all right there
    In front of me

    Sold down the river
    Left for dead
    Yeah you're puttin' ideas
    In another man's head
    And it's over now you see
    It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

    Thanks for nothin'
    Yeah thanks a lot
    Go ahead baby
    Take all I got
    And it's over now ya see
    It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
    It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

    It's the last time you're gonna hurt me Writer/s: MICHAEL CAMPBELL, TOM PETTY

  • Katee from Ashland, Orwas fortunate enough to see Tom Petty on this tour
    at the Gorge, and 'i should have known it' in our
    opinion, brought the house down. unbelievably powerful. my son and i agreed that it was the highlight of the concert. The whole concert was fabulous. But this particular song just blew our minds. I had heard the song before going to the concert, and was surprised to find that it stole the big show..! !Give it a listen. These guys are really getting into the blues. In a good way.
