The edited-out words to "A Boy Named Sue" is "Son of a B*tch", I believe...
I think the "Gay Ben" song referred to in a previous post is actually "The Ballad of Ben Gay" by Ben Gay and The Silly Savages (Elm Records, 1973). Elm Records was an independent label out of Westminister California... Who can forget "Harper Valley P.T.A." by Jeannie C. Riley?
I was the origional inquiring poster, re Boy Named Sue
& Gay Ben
. Thanks for those informative replies.
Re, JCR's Harper Valley PTA
-- perhaps not the most "family friendly" lyrics, but I think the message had more to do with hypocricy than hanky panky.
