The Cat Came Back Lyrics

now old mr. johnson had troubles of his own
had a yellow cat that wouldnt leave his home
he tried and he tried to give that cat away
gave it to a man going far away

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

now the man around the corner swore he'd kill the cat
onsite
he loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynomite
he waited and he waited for the cat to come around
97 pieces of the man is all they found

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

gave it to a little boy with a dollar note
told him for to take it up the river in a boat
they tied a rope around his neck it must've weighed a
pound
now they drag the river for the little boy thats
drowned

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

gave it to a man going up in a balloon
told him for to take it to the man on the moon
balloon came down about 90 miles away
where he is now I dare not say

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

he gave it to a man going way out west
told him for to take it to the one he loved the best
first the train hit the curb then it jumped the rail
not a soul was left behind to tell the gruesome tale

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away
away away away

away across the ocean they could send the cat allas
vessel out alone today taking water fast
people all began to pray the boat began to toss
a great big gust of wind came by and every soul was
lost

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought he was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

a telegraph wires barrel sitting in a bunch
cat was feeling hungry thought she'd take him for a
lunch
climb softly up the pole when she'd reached the top
put her foot in the electric wire which tied her in a
knot

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought she was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay away

now the cat was a possessor of a family of her own
7 little kittens till there came a cyclone
blew the house all apart tossed the cats around
the air was full of kittens and not a one was found

but the cat came back the very next day
the cat came back, they thought she was a goner
but the cat came back, just wouldnt stay awayaway away
away
just wouldnt stay away
