The Cat Came Back

(intro picks out melody on sixth string then goes from E to Am)


Am G F E
Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own

Am G F E
He had a yellow cat that wouldn’t leave his home

Am G F E
He tried and he tried to give the cat away

Am G F E
He gave it to a man going far far away



Am G F E
But the cat came back the very next day

Am G F E
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)

Am G F E
But the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay

Am G F E
Away away away


Can you make a cat sound?
Meow!
(repeat chord progression twice)



Am G F E
So he gave it to a woman going up in a balloon

Am G F E
He told her for to take it to the man up in the moon

Am G F E
The balloon came down about ninety miles away

Am G F E
And where the woman is now, well I cannot say



Am G F E
But the cat came back the very next day

Am G F E
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)

Am G F E
But the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay

Am G F E
Away away away



Am G F E
So he gave it to a man going way out west

Am G F E
He told him for to take it to the one he loved the best

Am G F E
First the train hit the track, then it jumped the rail

Am G F E
And nobody was left to tell the awful tale



Am G F E
But the cat came back the very next day

Am G F E
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)

Am G F E
But the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay

Am G F E
Away away away


Am
Meow!
