  • Exposition
  • Inciting incident
  •  Rising action
  • My daddy left home when I was three and he didn't leave much to ma and me.
  •  Climax
  • But the meanest thing he ever did was before he left, he went and named me Sue.
  •  Falling action
  • I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame. But I made a vow to the moon and stars that I'd search the honky-tonks and bars and kill that man who gave me that awful name.
  • Resolution / Ending
  • And 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 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 knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along so I give ya that name and I said goodbye. I knew you'd have to get tough or die 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 I came away with a different point of view.
