Name-Calling

Down-write Goodman: The article about David Allan Coe ["The Reddest Neck in Town," by Denise Edgington, May 30] said his songwriting abilities were in demand as well, and then mentioned his anthem, "You Never Even Called Me by My Name."

As the words in the song specifically state, Steve Goodman wrote that song and gave it to David Allan.

Mr. Coe can write songs, but he didn't write that one, and that's the song most people associate with him. Coe is more of a musical personality; Goodman was a songwriter's songwriter.
