    A Boy Named Sue
    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
    Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
    But the meanest thing that he ever did
    Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue. "

    Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke
    And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk
    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
    I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue. "

    Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean
    My fist got hard and my wits got keen
    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

    Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July
    And I just hit town and my throat was dry
    I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew
    At an old saloon on a street of mud
    There at a table, dealing stud
    Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "Sue. "

    Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad
    From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had
    And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye
    He was big and bent and gray and old
    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! "

    Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes
    And he went down, but to my surprise
    He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear
    But I busted a chair right across his teeth
    And we crashed through the wall and into the street
    Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer

    I tell ya, I've fought tougher men
    But I really can't remember when
    He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile
    I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss
    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 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. "

    He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight
    And I know you hate me, and you got the right
    To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do
    But ya ought to thank me, before I die
    For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye
    Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you "Sue. '"

    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
    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! I still hate that name!
