The Cat Came Back

Song Author Harry S. Miller Performer: Carol Smith og Sonny James Submitted by: Anonymous

[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]    [G]    [C]    [G]    


Now old Uncle John had troubles of his own
He 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

But [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]    [G]    [C]    [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

But [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]    [G]    [C]    [G]    


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

But [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]    [G]    [C]    [G]    


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

But [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]    [G]    [C]    [G]    


The cat came back the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now old Uncle John had troubles of his own
He had an ol' yellow cat that wouldn't leave home
He tried everything he knew to keep the cat away

Even gave it to a preacher and he told it for to stay

But the cat came back the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now they gave the ol' cat to the man in a balloon
They told him to leave it with the man in the moon
The balloon it bursted and everybody said

Ten miles away they picked the man up dead

But the cat came back the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now the farmer on the corner's gonna kill the cat on sight
He's loaded up his gun full of nails an' dynamite
Well he waited in the garden till the cat came around

Seven little pieces of the man was all they found

But the cat came back the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
Cause he wouldn't stay away

Well the cat was a terror and he thought it was best
To give him to a fella who was heading out west
The train went around the corner and it hit a broken rail

Not a soul aboard the train lived to tell the tale

But the cat came back the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
Cause he wouldn't stay away
