    I'm Officially Old Now

    So anyway today somehow through some twist of coversation the question came up:

    "So what did you ask your dad when you saw him?"

    And I answered

    "MY NAME IS SUE! HOW DO YOU DO!?"

    And no one got it... No one...

    Sigh.

    I thought that was all but ageless anyways.

    Saw some stuff on the new movie and Phoenix appears to be darned good at playing the part. I will look fwd to seeing it eventually.

    Johnny Cash was almost always in my life for it seems like - for ever!!

    Euc...Don't Forget

    We have some young forum members here that ain't gonna get it either.
    So here goes:


    A Boy Named Sue
    Johnny Cash

    Well, 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 because 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 have thought it was quite a joke
    And it got lots of laugh from a lot of folks
    It seems I had to fight my whole life through
    Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
    And some guy would laugh and I'd bust his head
    I tell you, 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
    Roamed from town to town to hide my shame
    But I made me a vow to the moon and stars
    I`d search the honky tonks and bars
    And kill that man that give me that awful name

    But it was Gatlinburg in mid July
    And I had 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
    And 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 had
    And I know that scar on his cheek and his evil eye
    He was big and bent and grey and old
    And I looked at him and my blood ran cold
    And I said, 'My name is Sue. How do you do?
    Now you`re gonna die.' Yeah, that`s what I told him

    Well I hit him 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 you 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 laughin' and then I heard him cussin'
    He went for his gun and I pulled mine first
    He stood there looking 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 know I wouldn't be there to help you along
    So I give you that name and I said good-bye
    I knew you'd have to get tough or die
    And it's that name that helped to make you strong'

    'Yeah', he said, 'now you just fought one ******* fight
    And I know you hate me and you've got the right
    To kill me now and I wouldn't blame you if you do
    But you ought to thank me before I die
    For the gravel in your guts
    And the spit in your eye because
    I'm the son-of-a-*****
    That named you Sue'

    Yeah, what could I do? What could I do?

    I got all choked up and I threw down my gun
    Called him Pa and he called me a son
    And I came away with a different point of view
    And I think about him now and then
    Every time I tried, every time I win
    And if I ever have a son I think I'm gonna name him
    Bill or George...anything but Sue
