                     [1: E7#9] 
She left to marry some top cat, ain't it the cold truth

  [Am]And there h[Dm7]asn't been a tally since S[Am7]ally left the alley
  Since K[Dm7]itty left with Big Pretty things have got [Esus4]pretty thin,[E]   [Esus4]       [E]

Verse 2:

Big Jack Knife cries cause baby's in a bundle
She goes runnin' nightly, lightly through the jungle
And them tin cans are explodin' down in the ninety degree heat
Cat somehow lost his baby down on Bleeker Street

       Dm7 [N.C.]
It's sad but it sure is true
  [Gsus4]Cat shrugs his s[G]houlders, [Gsus4]sits back and si[G]ghs

Verse 3:

Catlong lies back bent on a trash can
  Flashin' lights cut the night into white cities of neon [?]
Well you better move fast when you're young or you're not long around
Cat somehow lost his Kitty down in the city pound

  So get r[Dm7]ight, get t[F7]ight, get [Esus4]down     [E]    [Esus4]         [E]


  Well, [Esus4]who's that down at the end of the a[E]lley
  [Esus4]She's been gone so l[E]ong
  [Esus4](Here she comes, here she comes, h[E]ere she comes, here she comes)
the whole gang is watching her

  And [Amaj7]that she left him for a [F#m]city dude
  Well s[D]he's so soft, s[E]he's so blue
  [Gsus4]When he looks into her e[G]yes he[Gsus4] just sits back and s[G]ighs
