You Can't Housebreak A Tom Cat
Recorded by Cal Smith
Written by Gary Stewart
G 
Baby you tried chaining me down from getting my kicks
 
But you oughta know you can't teach an old cat new  
D7 
tricks
 
It's  
G 
plain to see that  
C 
I'm the prowling  
G 
kind
 
You can't  
C 
housebreak a  
G 
tomcat with tom
D7 
catting on his  
G 
mind
Well I've been accused of liking variety
 
But I guess that proves there's nothing wrong with  
D7 
me
 
A  
G 
man can't wear the  
C 
same shoes all the  
G 
time
 
You can't  
C 
housebreak a  
G 
tomcat with tom
D7 
catting on his  
G 
mind
 
Well I'm  
C 
going to the city to meet a little kitty
 
In a  
G 
sandbox way downtown
 
Watch the  
C 
cat hair fly if momma passes by
G 
And catches me out cattin'  
D7 
around
 
Well  
G 
there's gotta be more than  
C 
one way to skin a  
G 
cat
 
Baby you try skinning this'en with a basebal
D7 
 
bat
G 
With eight lives gone I'm  
C 
now on number  
G 
nine
 
You can't  
C 
housebreak a  
G 
tomcat with tom
D7 
cattin' on his  
G 
mind
Repeat #3,4
 
You can't  
C 
housebreak a  
G 
tomcat with tom
D7 
cattin' on his  
G 
mind
