These Chords taken from Jacob Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org) You Never Even Call Me By My Name David Allan Coe C G C It was all that I could do 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 G You never even call me by my name. C G C You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings 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 G C And I never minded standin' in the rain. F C You don't have to call me darlin', darlin' G C G 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... then: the spoken part below has this played in the background: (the numbers are complete bars) C-2 G-4 C-2 G-2 C-1 G-1 and then C to finish out the rest. C Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song G 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 perfect C country and western song because he hadn't said anything at all about G C G 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. The last verse goes like this here: C G C Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison. G C And I went to pick her up in the rain. F C Am But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck D G 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, I wonder why you don't call me C G F C F G Why don't you ever call me by my name.
