The Cat Came Back

Misc. Traditional


very simple and fun song the chords are the same for every line
Em D C B7 Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own He had a yellow cat which wouldn't leave its home He tried & he tried to give the cat away He gave it to a man going far, far away
chorus: But the cat came back the very next day The cat came back, they thought he was a goner But the cat came back, it just couldn't stay Away [you can either combine this with the line above or make it its own line]
The man around the corner swore he'd kill the cat on sight He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite He waited & he waited for the cat to come around 97 pieces of the man is all they found
chorus
He gave it to a fisherman with a dollar note
Told him for to take it up the river in a boat They tied a rope around its neck, it must have weighed a pound But they had to drag the river for the fisherman was drowned
chorus
He gave it to a man going up in a balloon He told him for to take it to the man in the moon The balloon came down about 90 miles away And where he is now I dare not say
chorus
He gave it to a man goin' way out west Told him for to take it to the one he loved the best First the train hit the curve, then it jumped the rail Not a soul was left behind to tell the gruesome tail
chorus
The atom bomb fell one bright summer day Then they dropped the H-bomb the very same way Russia went, England went & then the USA The human race was finished without a chance to pray
