You Never Even Called Me By My Name Lyrics

Well, it was all
That I could do to keep from crying’
Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain
But you don’t have to call me darlin’, darlin’
You never even called me by my name

…………….*……………..

You don’t have to call me Waylon Jennings
And you don’t have to call me Charlie Pride
And you don’t have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
Even though you’re on my fighting’ side

…………….*……………..

And I’ll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standing’ in the rain
But you don’t have to call me darlin’, darlin’
You never even called me by my name

…………….*……………..

Well, I’ve heard my name
A few times in your phone book (hello, hello)
And 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 judgment day

…………….*……………..

So I’ll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standing’ in the rain
But you don’t have to call me darlin’, darlin’
You never even called me by my name

…………….*……………..

Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
And he told me it was the perfect country & western song
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the perfect country & western song
Because he hadn’t said anything at all about mama
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

…………….*……………..

Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of 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 run over by a damned old train

…………….*……………..

And I’ll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standing’ in the rain, no
But you don’t have to call me darlin’, darlin’
You never even called me
Well, I wonder why you don’t call me
Why don’t you ever call me by my name

You Never Even Called Me By My Name Lyrics

Well it was all that I could do to keep from cryin’

Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain

But you don’t have to call me darlin’ darlin’

You never even call me by my name

You don’t h ave to call me Waylon Jennings

And you don’t have to call me Charley Pride

And you don’t have to call me Merle Haggard anymore

Even though you’re on my fightin’ side

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

and I never minded standing in the rain

But you don’t have to call me darlin’ darlin’

You never even call me by my name

Well I’ve heard my name a few times in your phonebook (hello hello)

And 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

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

and I never minded standing in the rain

But you don’t have to call me darlin’ darlin’

You never even call me by my name

(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 told him
It was not the percfect country and western song

Because he hadn’t said anything at all about mama

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 reading it I realized

And I went to pick her up in the rain

and I never minded standing in the rain

But you don’t have to call me darlin’ darlin’

You never even call me

Well I wonder why you don’t call me

Why don’t you ever call me by my name?
