"My daddy left home when i was three/ And he didn't leave much to ma and me"
"But the meanest thing he ever did/ Was before he left, he went and named me Sue"
"Well i grew up quick and i grew up mean... And kill that man who gave me that awful name...And i hit town.... Well i knew that snake was my own sweet dad"
"And i said:my name is sue!how do you do now your gonna die....Well i hit him hard right between the eyes... And we crashed through the wall and into the street/ Kicking and a gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer"
"...Son this world id rough...So i give ya that name and i said goodbye/I knew you'd have to get tough or die....And i know you hate me,and you got the right... but ya ought to thank me before i die"
I got all choked up and threw down my gun/ And i called him my pa and he called me his son....And i think about him ,now and then"
