I Was Drunk The Day My Mom Got Out Of Prison Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Well, it was all, that I could do to keep from cryin'

Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain

But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even call me by my name


[Verse 2]

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 fightin' side


[Chorus]

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me

And I never minded standin' in the rain

But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even called me by my name


[Verse 3]

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


[Chorus]

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me

And I never minded standin' in the rain

But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even called me by my name


[Recitation]

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 gettin' 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:


[Verse 4]

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


[Chorus]

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me

And I never minded standin' in the rain

No, an' you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even call me

Well, I wonder why you don't call me

Why don't you ever call me by my name

Spanish Version

[Verso 1]

Bueno, era todo lo que podía hacer para no llorar

A veces parecía tan inútil quedarse

Pero no tienes que llamarme cariño, cariño

Ni siquiera me llamas por mi nombre


[Verso 2]

No tienes que llamarme Waylon Jennings

Y no tienes que llamarme Charlie Pride

Y ya no tienes que llamarme Merle Haggard

Aunque estés en mi lado de pelea


[Coro]

Y me quedaré todo el tiempo que me dejes

Y nunca me importó estar bajo la lluvia

Pero no tienes que llamarme cariño, cariño

Ni siquiera me llamaste por mi nombre


[Verso 3]

Bueno, he escuchado mi nombre varias veces en su directorio telefónico (hola, hola)

Y lo he visto en los letreros donde he jugado

Pero la única vez que sé que escucharé "David Allan Coe"

Es cuando Jesús tiene su día del juicio final


[Coro]

Y me quedaré todo el tiempo que me dejes

Y nunca me importó estar bajo la lluvia

Pero no tienes que llamarme cariño, cariño

Ni siquiera me llamaste por mi nombre


[Recitación]

Bueno, un amigo mío llamado Steve Goodman escribió esa canción

Y me dijo que era la canción perfecta de country y western

Le escribí una carta y le dije que no era la canción country y occidental perfecta.


Porque no había dicho nada sobre mamá, ni trenes, ni camiones, ni prisión, ni emborracharse.


Bueno, se sentó y escribió otro verso de la canción y me lo envió.

Y después de leerlo me di cuenta de que mi amigo había escrito la canción country y western perfecta.


Y me sentí obligado a incluirlo en este álbum.

El último verso dice así aquí:


[Verso 4]

Bueno, estaba borracho el día que mi mamá salió de la cárcel

Y fui a buscarla bajo la lluvia

Pero antes de que pudiera llegar a la estación en mi camioneta

Ella fue atropellada por un maldito tren viejo


[Coro]

Y me quedaré todo el tiempo que me dejes

Y nunca me importó estar bajo la lluvia

No, y no tienes que llamarme cariño, cariño

Ni siquiera me llamas

Bueno, me pregunto por qué no me llamas

¿Por qué nunca me llamas por mi nombre?
