You Never Even Call Me By My Name - Steve Goodman (and David Allen Coe?!?)

       G                D               G
It was all that I could do to keep from cryin'
    C                 D            G
Sometimes it seems so useless to remain
C                 D               G    Em
You don't have to call me darlin',  darlin'
    G          D             C     G
You never even call me by my name

G                 D              G
You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
    C                 D               G
And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
    C                 D             G            Em
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard...anymore
A7                                  D
  Even though you're on my fightin' side


Chorus:
         C                               G
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
         C            D               G
'Cause I never minded standin' in the rain
C                 D               G    Em
You don't have to call me Darlin',  Darlin'
        G          D             C     G
But you never even call me by my name

          G              D                 G
Well I've seen my name a few times in your phone book
         C              D                G
And I've seen it on the signs where I've played
        C           D         G                 Em
But the only time I know I'll hear "David Allen Coe"
        A7                            D
Is when Jesus has his final judgement day


Chorus:
So I'll hang around...


Talk:
"Well, a friend of mine, Steve Goodman, wrote this song
and he said it was the perfect country and western song.
I wrote him back a letter and told him that it was not the
perfect country-western song because he hadn't said anything
at all about Momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting
drunk.  Well, he sat down and wrote another verse to the song
and he sent it to me and, after reading it, I realized that
my friend had written the perfect country-western song, and I
felt obliged to include it on this album.  The last verse goes
like this here:"

           G                D                G
Well I was drunk the day my Momma got out of prison
      C                D         G
And I went to pick her up in the rain
    C              D                        G      Em
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
   A7                                      D
My Momma, she got run over by a damned old train


Chorus:
        C                   D                G
So I'll hang around just as long as you will let me
         C            D               G
'Cause I never minded standing in the rain
C                 D               G    Em
You don't have to call me darlin',  darlin'
        G          D
But you never even call me...
  G                    Em
I wonder why you don't call me...
    G              D             C      G
Why don't you even call me by my name?
