"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."
"But the meanest thing he ever did, Was before he left he went and named me Sue."
"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.
"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!
