Storyboard Text

  • Introduction
  • Inciting Incident
  • Rising Action
  • "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."
  • Climax
  • "But the meanest thing he ever did, Was before he left he went and named me Sue."
  • Falling Action
  • "It seems I had to fight my whole life through, Some gal would giggle and I'd get red, And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head, But I made a vow to the moon and stars, That I'll kill that man who gave me that awful name.
  • Conclusion
  • "Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean, My fist got hard and my wits got keen, And there at a table, dealing stud, Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me Sue And I said: MY NAME IS SUE, NOW YOUR GONNA DIE!!
  • "I tell ya I've fought tougher men, but I really can't remember when, And he went for his gun but I pulled mine first, and he stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile." And he said: "Son this world is rough, and the name 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 think about him 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! I still hate that name!
