You Never Even Call Me By My Name
Recorded by David Allan Coe
Written by Steve Goodman

C G7 C
Well it was all that I could do to keep from cryin'
F C
Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain
F C
But you don't have to call me darlin' darlin'
G7 C
You never even call me by my name

G7 C
You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
G7 C
And you don't have to call me Charley Pride
F C Am
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
D7 G7
Even though you're on my figtin' side

F C
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
G7 C
And I never minded standin' in the rain
F C
But you don't have to call me darlin' darlin'
G7 C G7
You never even call me by my name

C G7 C
Well I've heard my name a few times in your phonebook (hello hello)
G7 C
And I've seen it on signs where I've played
F C Am
But the only time I know I'll hear David Allan Coe
D7 G7
Is when Jesus has His final judgement day

Repeat #3 So I'll hang...

C
(Well a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
G7
And he told me it was the perfect country and western song

I wrote him back a letter and I told him

It was not the perfect country and western song
C
Because he hadn't said anything at all about momma
G7 C
Or trains or trucks or prison or gettin' drunk


Well he sat down and wrote another verse to the song and he sent it to me

And after readin' it I realized

That my friend had written the perfect country and western song

And I felt at last obliged to itself the last verse goes like this here

G7 C G7 C
Well I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
G7 C
And I went to pick her up in the rain
F C Am
But before I could get to the station in a pickup truck
D7 G7
She got run'd over by a damned old train

F C
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
G7 C
And I never minded standin' in the rain
C7 F C
Ohh you don't have to call me darlin' darlin'
G7 C F
You never even call me but I wonder why you don’t call me
C G7 F C
Why you don’t ever call me by my name
