“A Boy Named Sue” – Johnny Cash and Shel Silverstein Perform Live

From 1970: Johnny Cash and Shel Silverstein perform a duet of “Boy Named Sue” (written by Silverstein) on the Johnny Cash show.

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”.
