Recorded by Sonny James
Written by Harry S. Miller
[G]The cat came back the cat came back
I thought [G7]he was a goner but the [C]cat came back
Cause he [D7]wouldn’t stay [G]away [C] [D7] [G] [C] [D7]

[G]Now old Uncle John had troubles of his own
Had an ol’ yellow cat that [D7]wouldn’t leave home
He tried [G]everything he knew to keep the cat away

Even gave it to a preacher and he told it for to stay
Repeat #1 But the cat…
[G]Now they gave the ol’ cat to the man in a balloon
They told him to leave it with the [D7]man in the moon
The balloon it [G]bursted and everybody said
Ten miles away they picked the man up dead
Repeat #1 But the cat…
Now the farmer on the corner’s gonna kill the cat on sight
He’s loaded up his gun full of [D7]nails an’ dynamite
Well he [G]waited in the garden till the cat came around
Seven little pieces of the man was all they found

Repeat #1 But the cat…
Well the cat was a terror and he thought it was best
To give him to a fella who was [D7]heading out west
The train [G]went around the corner and it hit a broken rail
Not a soul aboard the train lived to tell the tale

Repeat #1 But the cat…[/chordpress]
