Mean Eyed Cat  Johnny Cash

Alright, its probably because this is a pretty simple song that no one has put up the
I decided to just in case.
Tuning: Standard
Chords used: E, A7, B7. There'll be some subtle variations on each chord. Give the song
good listen to figure them out, mainly on the E.
[E]I gave my woman half my money at the general store I said, "Now buy a little
groceries, and don't spe[B7]nd no more." But she paid ten d[E]ollars for a ten cent hat
And bought some store bought[A7] cat food for that mean eyed cat.[B7]
[E]When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my head There wasn't a cotton pickin'
thing on her [B7]side of the bed I found a l[E]ittle old note where her head belonged It
said, "Dear Jo[A7]hn, honey, baby, I'm long gon[B7]e."
[A7]When I heard a whistle blowin', and the big wheels a-turnin' I was scared as I[E]
could be I pu[E]t on my overalls and I headed to to[A7]wn Gonna bring her back with [B7]me.
[E]I asked the man down at the station if he'd seen her there I told him all about
her pretty eyes and long, b[B7]londe hair He spit his t[E]obacco, said, "I'll be dad
blamed...... I b'lieve I did se[A7]e her leavin' on the east bound t[B7]rain."
[A7]I bought a round trip ticket on the east bound train I was broke as I could[E] be But
when I come back, I gotta buy anothe[A7]r ticket, gonna bring her back wi[B7]th me.
[E]Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas And I worked up the guts to call
my Mot[B7]her-In-Law She said, "I'll t[E]ell you where she is, if you act right." "She's
[A7]workin' four to twelve at Trucke[B7]r's World tonight."
[A7]When I walked in she saw me, and she took off her apron And she grabbed her[E]
goin' home hat ,she bought a ticket with her tips and now we're curled up on the[A7]
sofa, me and her and that [B7]mean eyed cat[E]
the rest of the song just jams on E
