"I Got You" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music duo Thompson Square. It was released in May 2011 as the third single from their self-titled debut album.

Content[edit]

Written by the duo along with Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins, "I Got You" is a lyric about two lovers who need each other, comparing themselves to various objects that need others in order to work.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

William Ruhlmann of Allmusic thought that it was a "variation" on the theme of "a love story from initial smooch through exchanged vows" established by "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not". [2]

The music video, shot by Wes Edwards over the course of two days, features the duo wearing several different costumes.[3]
