You never even call me by my name. Report Abuse
Co-written with John Prine who didn't want his name on the credits as it was just a mock country song. However, David Alan Coe took it to the top of the country charts so Steve bought Prine a Wurlitzer jukebox as a thank you.

Vegematic Report Abuse
there's only a live version of this but it's a Goodman gold standard. The guitar playing puts it as a top 5 SG song
