A#
My daddy left home when I was three
D#
And he didn't leave much to ma and me
F                                                                  A#
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
A#
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
D#
But the meanest thing that he ever did
F                                                                 A#
Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue."

A#
Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke
D#
And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk,
F                                                                   A#
It seems I had to fight my whole life through.
A#
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
D#
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
F                                                          A#
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

A#
Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean,
D#
My fist got hard and my wits got keen,
F                                                            A#
I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame.
A#
But I made a vow to the moon and stars
D#
That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars
F                                                                 A#
And kill that man who gave me that awful name.

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

A#
Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad
D#
From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had,
F                                                                  A#
And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye.
A#
He was big and bent and gray and old,
D#
And I looked at him and my blood ran cold
F                                                                   A#
And I said: "My name is 'Sue!' How do you do!

Now you gonna die!!"
