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 DONT HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN'
YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME BY MY NAME

YOU DONT HAVE TO CALL ME WAYLON JENNINGS
AND YOU DONT HAVE TO CALL ME CHARLIE PRIDE
AND YOU DONT HAVE TO CALL ME MERLE HAGGARD/ANYMORE
EVEN THOUGH YOURE ON MY FIGHTING SIDE

CHORUS:
AND ILL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING IN THE RAIN
BUT YOU DONT HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN
YOU NEVER EVEN CALLED ME BY MY NAME

WELL, IVE HEARD MY NAME
A FEW TIMES IN YOUR PHONE BOOK (Hello, Hello)
AND IVE SEEN IT ON SIGNS WHERE IVE PLAYED
BUT THE ONLY TIME I KNOW
ILL HEAR "DAVID ALLAN COE"
IS WHEN JESUS HAS HIS FINAL JUDGMENT DAY

REPEAT CHORUS

RECITATION:
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 HADNT 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 NED OVER BY A DAMNED OLD TRAIN

CHORUS:
AND ILL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING IN THE RAIN
NO, A YOU DONT HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN
YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME
WELL I WONDER WHY YOU DONT CALL ME
WHY DONT YOU EVER CALL ME BY MY NAME
