Recorded live at San Quentin State Prison in 1969, it was Johnny Cash's only top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. "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."   2

No one tells a story like Johnny, I listened to this 1000+ times on the music centre when I was 7-8 years old, and it still makes me smile today

"And I cut off a piece of his ear" ... The tiny children in the audience must have loved that bit!   3

Apparently my lazy scrawl looks more like ‘Sue’ than it does ‘Joe’, hence a recent case of mistaken id
