“Wanted Me Gone” is the second single from Josh Thompson’s recent release Turn It Up.
The single was written by Josh along with Brad and Brett Warren. “Wanted Me Gone” is a fun, and at times funny, song that will have you grooving from the first note. The song, which has a definite twangy country/southern rock sound, tells the story of a guy whose girl “wanted him gone,” but is now crying because she’s all alone--while he’s in “heaven every weekend.”
The sing along at the end feels like a giant “so long” to the women out there who wanted their fellas gone, but soon regret it.
“I put the good in front of bye y’all
Put a hole in the drywall
Put the pedal to the firewall and I was gone
Met the boys at the starlight
Tried to drink a hundred Bud Lights
Lost count around midnight
But you got what you wanted baby”
The single is currently available for download.
