Talk:
Well a friend of mine Steve Goodman wrote this song
and he said it was the perfect country and western song
I wrote him back a letter and told him that it was not the
perfect country-western song because he hadn't said anything
at all about Momma 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

G chordG D chordD G chordG
Well I was drunk the day my Momma got out of prison
C chordC D chordD G chordG
And I went to pick her up in the rain
C chordC D chordD G chordG Em chordEm
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
A7 chordA7 D chordD
My Momma she got run over by a damned old train


Chorus:
C chordC D chordD G chordG
So I'll hang around just as long as you will let me
C chordC D chordD G chordG
Cause I never minded standing in the rain
C chordC D chordD G chordG Em chordEm
You don't have to call me darlin' darlin'
G chordG D chordD
But you never even call me
G chordG Em chordEm
I wonder why you don't call me
G chordG D chordD C chordC G chordG
Why don't you even call me by my name
