David Allan Coe - You Never Even Called Me by My Name


"You Never Even Called Me by My Name" is a song written and recorded by Steve Goodman and John Prine; and recorded by country music singer David Allan Coe.

 It was the third single release of Coe's career, included on his album Once Upon a Rhyme. The song was Coe's first Top Ten hit, reaching a peak of number eight on the Billboard country singles charts. The song, over five minutes long, is known for its humorous self-description as "the perfect country and western song."
