Rare Video of “A Boy Named Sue” by Johnny Cash on the Tom Jones Show

“A Boy Named Sue” is a well-known song, but not many have seen Johnny Cash’s performance of it on the Tom Jones TV Series in November 1969:

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.”
