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
