C D GAnd on the neon sign above the bar I use to own
C D G EmThere is only one thing that I am really sure of
A7 DI'll gonna hear it when my savoir calls me home
Spoken Well we left out a lot of stuff. We left out: farms, mother, prison, trucks, trains, Getting drunk, thanks to Cole, and dead dogs like Old Shep, And a big holiday like Christmas And with all due respect you can’t have a good country song without Mother, prison, farms, trucks, trains, Getting drunk, And dead dogs like Old Shep. So here’s the last verse. Verse 4
G D GEver since the dog got drunk and died and mama went to prison
C D GWhy nothin’ 'round this farm’s been the same
C D G EmYou know when mom broke out last Christmas,
A7 DShe drove that damned old getaway laundry truck right in to a train
Chorus:
C GAnd I'll hang around as long as you will let me
C D GI never minded standin' in the rain
C D G EmYou don't have to call me Darlin', Darlin'
G D C GBut you never even call me by my name
