Shouldn't a Told You That is the third studio album by American country band Dixie Chicks, released in 1993 (see 1993 in music). It was their third and final album for the Crystal Clear Sound label, and last to feature singer-bassist Laura Lynch. This album was five years before the release of their 1998 breakthrough album Wide Open Spaces.

The title track, "Shouldn't a Told You That", was written by Walter Hyatt of the famed Austin cult classic band, Uncle Walt's Band. The track "There Goes My Dream" was previously recorded by Mark Collie for his album Born & Raised in Black & White in 1991.
