My daddy left home when i was three... before he left, he went and named me "Sue"
It got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk, It seems I had to fight my whole life through... I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue"
I just hit town and my throat was dry, I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew. There at a table, dealing stud... I looked at him and my blood ran cold and i said: " My name is 'Sue'! How do you do! Now your gonna die!!
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 if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough.
And I know you hate me, and you got the right to kill me now, and i wouldn't blame you if you do.
I got all choked up and I threw down my gun... And I came away with a different point of view. and I think about him, now and then, Every time I try and every time I win, And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him Bill or George! Anything but Sue!
