"My Daddy Left Home When I Was Three"

Just when you think that maybe the folks over at the AFT Blog have lost their mojo since John left, they pull out something like this post about the behavior of boys with girlish names: Boys Named Sue. And for those who may have forgotten the lyrics (by Shel Silverstein): "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."

Can you provide a link for "lyrics (by Shel Silverstein)". It's hard for me to imagine Johnny Cash looking to Silverstein for lyrics...
