This is a detailed discography for American country music artist David Allan Coe. Coe started his career in 1970 on SSS International Records before signing with Columbia Records and staying with the label for 15 years. In the 1990s, he released albums through several independent labels such as his own DAC Records. Most of these releases have been reissued under different names and/or cannibalized for various compilations. Overall, Coe's discography consists of 42 studio albums, 4 live albums, 1 collaboration album and 1 audiobook, in addition to many compilation albums. Given the obscure nature of Coe's '90s albums and the limited information available, sources have been included for each album after his split with Columbia.
