"Love You" is a country music song by Texas country music artist Jack Ingram. The song was the second single from his "Live: Wherever You Are" album, and is one of the two studio tracks on the album, which is otherwise a live compilation.

The song is considered a "kiss-off" song. Its lyrics feature several phrases where the word "fuck" is replaced with the word "love", most notably in the chorus ("Love you, love this town / Love this mother-lovin' truck that keeps breakin' lovin' down"). There are also more traditional replacements, with "dang," "heck," and "shoot" appearing several times in the first verse (replacing "damn", "hell", and "shit", respectively).

Video

The song's video shows Ingram performing in a bar, while his girlfriend is outside destroying a pickup truck, which she assumes is Jack's. She scratches "love you" in the paint of the hood with her car keys, uses a baseball bat to break the windows, and finally shoots out the tires with a shotgun. Jack then comes out of the bar at the end of the song, laughs at the vandalized truck, and then leaves in his own truck, parked several spaces away. The actual owner of the vandalized truck -- a large, muscular man in a leather vest -- comes out of the bar and surveys the damage to his truck, just as the girl flees the scene.
