"You Never Even Call Me By My Name" as written by and John Prine Steve Goodman....
It was all that I could do to keep from crying
Sometimes it seems so useless to remain
You're the one who always tried to change me
That is why I'll always stay the same

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

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
No you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
Even though you know you're on my fightin' side

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

I've seen my name a few times in the phone book
(Hello, hello, hello)
And on the neon sign above the bar I used to own
There is only one thing that I'm really sure of
I'm going to hear it when my Savior calls me home

Til that day I'm gonna hang around as long as you will let me
I never minded standing in the rain
You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
But you never even called me by my name

It's not her heart Lord, it's her mind
She didn't mean to be unkind
And you never even call me by my name
Bye baby
