You Never Even Call me by My Name
Steve Goodman / John Prine

Verse 1
       G                D               G
It was all that I could do to keep from cryin'
    C                 D          G
Sometimes it seems so useless to remain
C                D               G     Em
Your the one who always tried to change me 
G             D           C        G
That is why I will always stay the same


Chorus:
         C                               G
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
C              D               G
I never minded standin' in the rain
C                 D       G         Em
You don't have to call me Darlin',  Darlin'
        G          D             C     G
But you never even call me by my name


Verse 2
G                 D              G
You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
    C                 D               G
No, you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
    C                 D             G                Em
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard...anymore
A7                                  D
  Even though you know you're on my fightin' side


Chorus:
         C                               G
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
C              D                   G
I never minded standin' in the rain
C                 D       G         Em
You don't have to call me Darlin',  Darlin'
        G          D             C     G
But you never even call me by my name


Solo


Verse 3
     G              D                G
I've seen my name a few times in the phone book 
           C                   D            G
And on the neon sign above the bar I use to own 
         C              D         G           Em
There is only one thing that I am really sure of
           A7                              D
I'll gonna hear it when my savoir calls me home

Spoken 
Well we left out a lot of stuff.
We left out: farms, mother, prison, trucks, trains, 
Getting drunk, thanks to Cole, and dead dogs like Old Shep,
And a big holiday like Christmas 
And with all due respect you can’t have a good country song without
Mother, prison, farms, trucks, trains, Getting drunk, 
And dead dogs like Old Shep.
So here’s the last verse.
  

Verse 4
G                                D                     G
Ever since the dog got drunk and died and mama went to prison
    C                   D               G
Why nothin’ 'round this farm’s been the same
C                 D              G          Em
You know when mom broke out last Christmas,
                          A7                                  D
She drove that damned old getaway laundry truck right in to a train


Chorus:
         C                               G
And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
C              D                   G
I never minded standin' in the rain
C                 D       G            Em
You don't have to call me Darlin',  Darlin'
        G          D             C     G
But you never even call me by my name
