You said she likes country right....? How about one of these two versions of the same song...I've heard crowds of drunken people singing this song...always gets them going...

David Allan Coe version:

It was all that I could do to keep from cryin'

Sometimes it seems so useless to remain

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even call me by my name.

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings

And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride.

You don't have to call me Merle Haggard, anymore.

Even though your 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.

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even call me by my name.

I've heard my name a few times in your phone book

I've seen it on signs where I've laid

But the only time I know, I'll hear David Allan Coe

Is when Jesus has his final judgment day.

Chorus:

Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta 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 runned over by a damned old train.

Chorus:

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

And I never minded standin' in the rain.

No, You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

You never even call me, I wonder why you don't call me

Why don't you ever call me by my name.

or...same song, slightly different by the songwriters....

Perfect Country & Western Song)

Steve Goodman and [although he won't admit it] John Prine)

(as sung by Steve Goodman in London, Aug 8, 1976)

[spoken] This is a song I wrote with John Prine 4 years ago (1972) and we tried to put into one song, everything that had ever been in any of the country and western songs we had ever heard. Tried to put it all into one song. Serves us right. This is what came out:

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

Some times it seems so useless to remain

You're the one who always tried to change me

And that is why I will always stay the same

Chorus:

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

I never minded standing in the rain

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

But you never even call me by my name

No, you don't have to call me Freddy Fender

You don't have to call me Charlie Pride

You don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore

Even though you know you're on my fighting side

Chorus- this verse only:

And I'm gonna hang around as long as you will let me

I never minded standing in the rain (when nights are cold and lonely)

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

But you never even call me by name.

[musical by mouth improv done in a Merle Haggard-like tone -no words]

[spoken] I've seen my name, a few times in the phone book

[spoken] And on the neon sign above the bar I used to own

[spoken] And there's only one thing I'm really sure of was that sucker

You're gonna hear it when my savior calls me home

[spoken] That's a lot to get into one song. We left out all the good stuff. Dallas, dope, divorce, dead dogs, trains prison Christmas, mothers, farms, and trucks. Mothers, prison, trucks, trains, farms, Christmas, and dead dogs are essential, you can't have a good country song without them things. And with all due respect this song needs mothers, prison, trucks, trains, farms, Christmas and dead dogs and is that it? Whatever it is - it's also 4 minutes long already (they're going 'when's he gonna end, when's he gonna end in the booth back there') So I'll just tack this verse on the end here-

Ever since the dog died and mama went to prison

Ain't nothin' round this old farm that's been the same

[spoken] You know when mom broke out last Christmas

She drove the getaway laundry truck into a train

Chorus:

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

I never minded standing in the rain

You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'

But you never even call me by my name
