Jade started Loving Himself Today.

It’s a punk/country mash up that’s has a long awkward start and then finished too fast.

Now there is another song that happens to be the Perfect Country Song. It was written by David Allen Coe:

You Never Even Called Me by My Name

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkKn5HrKgHQ

The lyrics are:

Well, it was all
That I could do to keep from crying'
Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me by my name

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
Even though you're on my fighting' side

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

Well, I've heard my name
A few times in your phone book (hello, hello)
And I've seen it on signs where I've played
But the only time I know
I'll hear "David Allan Coe"
Is when Jesus has his final judgment day

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

Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
And he told me it was the perfect country & western song
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the perfect country & western song
Because he hadn't said anything at all about mama
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

Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got run over by a damned old train

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standing' in the rain, no
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me
Well, I wonder why you don't call me
Why don't you ever call me by my name

Jamie said, "I'll love you till I die"
JadeRose told him, "You'll forget in time"
As the years went slowly by
Victor still preyed upon his mind
He kept Teedubbya’s picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
But he still loved them through it all
Hoping they’d come back again
Kept some d!ldo’s by his bed
Nothing under 12 foot 2
He had a perforated colon,
I went to see him just today
Oh, but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go see them all
First time I'd seen him smile in years
He never stopped loving them even till this day
They placed a rainbow upon his door
And soon they'll bang him away
He never stopped loving them even till this day
You know, they all came on him one last time (ooh)
Ah, and we all wondered if they would (ooh)
And it kept runnin' through my mind (ooh)
"This time he's drowned for good"
He never stopped loving them even till this day
They placed a rainbow upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving them today

Yes, written by Steve Goodman and John Prine. I though the Steve Goodman part was part of the song, well. it is, but anyway.


"You Never Even Called Me by My Name"
Single by David Allan Coe
B-side "Would You Lay with Me (In a Field Of Stone?)"[1]
Released June 1975

"You Never Even Called Me by My Name" is a song written by Steve Goodman and John Prine. Prine requested to be uncredited on the song, as he thought it was a "goofy, novelty song" and didn't want to "offend the country music community". Goodman released the song on his eponymous 1971 debut album Steve Goodman to little acclaim. It was more famously recorded by country music singer David Allan Coe on his 1975 album Once Upon a Rhyme. It was the third single release of Coe's career and his 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."

On a WNEW-FM radio show, 1987. John Prine told his version of the story behind the song. He said that he and Goodman had recently scored their first recording contract in New York City and Paul Anka had been assigned to them as their manager. As a regular performer at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Anka had a grand luxury suite dedicated for his use as a dressing room. But since Anka already lived in New York he didn't need it. So he let Goodman and Prine stay there to write music while they were in town. Prine says they raided the suite's full bar and "mixed a special cocktail punch" in the sink with "...Dom Perignon, a little bit of brandy, a little bit of Jack Daniels, quite a bit of Wild Turkey; and some vodka and gin; and some punch and 7up." So, the song was completed while they were wildly intoxicated.

Dude lived his life pining for a woman who left him, and then he died? And that's the greatest country song ever written?

I dunno, man... he sounds like a dumbass.

Fine choices, both. As is Jonesy's "Wichita Lineman." I would throw in "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" and "Sunday Morning Coming Down" but the combination of those sad words (with just a touch of humor) sung by THAT voice make "He Stopped.." Numero Uno.

I think we can all agree that Modern Country blows goats. At least the crap they play on the radio. There is actually a lot of good music being made right now, it just doesn't get played. and they wonder why radio is pretty much dead

The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin' women
I don't need my name in the marquee lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newbury's train songs and "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas, ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby, let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society, you cry all day
We've been so busy keepin' up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin' got us feudin'
Like the Hatfield and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newbury's train songs and "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas, ain't nobody feelin' no pain

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
Willie and Waylon and the boys
This successful life we're livin's got us feudin'
Like the Hatfield and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Jerry Jeff's train songs and "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas, there ain't nobody feelin' no pain

I like Country music but not enough to listen to it on a regular basis. FWIW, my favorite Country song is the George Jones and Willie Nelson rendition of “I Gotta Get Drunk” from George’s “My Very Special Guests”.

https://youtu.be/HKD_o4gbcSE

Second favorite is “Daddies Need to Grow Up Too” by the O’Kanes.
