"You Shouldn't Have" as written by and Alan Anderson Rob Fulks....
Well, you did what you did
And you know, that you did it
And there ain't no use to deny it

I got you dead to rights, baby
Now, you're gone
And made me mad

You been cattin' on a sly
Now, you bat your pretty eyes with a tale
No monkey'd ever buy it
Is that a line you're handin' me, girl?

Well, you shouldn't have, no, you shouldn't have
You shouldn't have let half the home town at you
You shouldn't 've told a lie and you shouldn't 've let me catch you
You shouldn't have cheated when you could've been treating me right

Now, there's scratches on your back
Smoke on your breath
Your baby blues could use a blood lettin'

You partied all night, pickin' up everything but the tab
But I'm handin' you the bill for a thousand tears spilled
And I'm gonna be a long time forgettin'
Thanks so much for wreckin' my heart

Well, you shouldn't have, no, you shouldn't have
You shouldn't have let half the home town at you
You shouldn't 've told a lie and you shouldn't 've let me catch you
You shouldn't have cheated when you could've been treating me right

Well, if you had to go places where you shouldn't have been
You shouldn't have bothered comin' home again
I don't need what you gimme in the cold light of dawn
Only what you give away, all night long

You did what you did and you know that you did it
'Cause the knees are ripped out from your stockings
Yeah, next time you crawl through the gutter, better cover your track

But when you're done raisin' hell, ringin' all the boys' bells
Don't you come round here a knockin'
'Cause everything you've done to me, girl

Well, you shouldn't have, oh, you shouldn't have
You shouldn't have let half the home town at you
You shouldn't 've told a lie and you shouldn't 've let me catch you
You shouldn't have cheated when you could've been treating me right
You shouldn't have cheated when you could've been treating me right
