Coe David Alan – You Dont Even Call Me By My Name
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
You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
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
You don't have to call me Merle Baggard, anymore.
D               G
Even though your on my fightin' side.

F                 C
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
G
And I never minded standin' in the rain.
F                C
You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
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 laid
But the only time I know, I'll hear David Allan Coe
Is when Jesus has his final judgement day.

CBoRUS:

(enter now the Steve Goodman story.  The first half is played with a background
 of C and G.  Just before Steve writes back with the perfect Country and
Western song, it is just a straight background C chord.

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.

CBoRUS:

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         F      C
You never even call me, I wonder why you don't call me
F          C         G    C F C
Why don't you ever call me by my name.
