Morgan Wallen Teases Reflective New Song ‘I Wrote The Book’
Morgan Wallen recently took to social media to tease a reflective new song, “I Wrote The Book.”
“Figured I’d let y’all hear another one real quick before we all get to head banging to Hardy’s new album tonight,” Wallen captioned the clip on Instagram, referencing HARDY’s new album, the mockingbird & THE CROW.
Hardy’s album, which arrived on Friday, features a duet (“Red”) with Wallen.
In “I Wrote The Book,” Wallen lists and speaks about some things he knows a bit about, such as hunting, fishing and baseball, and offers up a hypothetical book he wrote on each of the subjects, meaning he’s mastered them.
“When it comes to hitching the boat up / Backing down the ramp in my old truck / To find a bunch of logs to catch a bunch of hogs / yeah, I wrote the book, yeah, I wrote the book / If you want to learn to throw a curve right / Catch a clean up looking on a third strike / Talk a little smack while he’s walking back / yeah, I wrote the book,” he sings in a verse.
In the chorus, Wallen transitions to a different book that he didn’t write, the Bible, and admits he doesn’t read through those pages enough, and as a result, he’s no expert.
