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

If you could figure out the tabs for the little intro he uses in this version it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm a beginner so I don't quite have the ears to figure it out yet.

Thanks!
