David Allan Coe - You Never Even Called Me by My Name guitar chord

C G

It was all that I could do

C

to keep from cryin'

F C

sometimes it seems so useless to remain

F C

But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

C G C

You never even call me by my name.

C G C

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings

C G C

And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride.

F C Am

And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard, anymore.

D G

Even though your on my fightin' side.

CHORUS

F C

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me

C G C

And I never minded standin' in the rain.

F C

But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

C G C

You never even call me by my name

I've heard my name a few times in your phone book

I've seen it on signs where I've played

But the only time I know, I'll hear David Allan Coe

Is when Jesus has his final judgement day

CHORUS:

Entered by lmofle 10/9/2005:

C G

Well a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song and he told me it was

the perfect country and western song. I wrote him back a letter and I told him

C

it was not the perfect country and western song because he hadn't said anything

G C G

at all about momma...or trains...or trucks...or prison...or gettin' drunk.

C

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 and

western song. And I felt obliged to include it on this album...last verse goes

like this here

Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison.

And I went to pick her up in the rain.

But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck

She got runned over by a damned old train.

CHORUS:

So I'll hang around as long as you will let me

And I never minded standin' in the rain. No,

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

C G C F

You never even call me, Well, I wonder why you don't call me

C G F C

Why don't you ever call me by my name.
