My daddy left home when I was three And he didn't leave much to ma and me just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze... he went and named me "Sue".
Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke,... Some guy'd laugh and i'd bust his head, I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue".
There at a table, dealing stud, Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "sue"...
I tell ya, I've fought tougher men... He went for his gun and I pulled mine first. He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile.
And he said:"Son this world is rough... And it's the name that helped to make you strong."...
I got all choked up and I threw down my gun. And I called him my pa, and he called me his son... And if I ever I have a son, I think I'm gonna name him Bill or George! Anything but Sue! I still hate that name!
