The Cat Came Back

The same chords are repeated through the whole song
The strum pattern below works for me

Chorus chord progression also repeats x4 with the last 
"away" as its own line or you can sing the last away without chords / (NC)


Em         G           C               D
Old Mister Johnson had troubles of his own
Em              G         C                  D
He had a yellow cat which wouldn't leave his home
Em              G        C            D
He tried and he tried to give the cat away
Em              G         C        D
He gave it to a man goin' far, far away

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy
 
Em                G                  C              D
The farmer on the corner swore he'd kill the cat on sight
Em                G           C         D         (NC)
He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite   “Click Click”
Em                G             C           D
He waited in the garden for the cat to come around
Em           G             C               D
Ninety seven pieces of the man is all they found

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em              G          C      D
He gave it to a man with a dollar note
Em                 G     C    D
He took him up the river in a boat
Em              G        C         D
The boat turned over and was never found
Em                G           C          D
Now they drag the river for a man that's drowned

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em              G         C       D
He gave it to a man going up in a balloon
Em             G              C          D
He told him to take it to the man in the moon
Em                G         C            D
The balloon came down about ninety miles away
Em          G           C        D
Where he is now, well I dare not say

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em             G                    C           D
They sneaked into the shop with the butcher not around
Em                   G                       C        D
And they dropped him in the hopper where the meat was ground
Em             G               C              D
The old cat disappeared with a blood-curdling shriek
Em                G              C           D
And that shop's hamburger tasted furry for a week...

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em               G                     C       D
They threw him in the kennel where the dog was asleep
Em                G       C          D
And the bones of cats lay piled in a heap
Em                G                  C               D
That ol' kennel burst apart and the dog flew out the side
Em                G          C            D
With his ears chewed off and holes in his hide...

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em                G            C             D
Then they found a way this cat they'd really fix
Em                 G               C             D
They put him in an orange crate on Highway Sixty-Six
Em          G            C          D     (NC)
A long come truck with a twenty ton load “SPLAT”
Em                  G              C             D
Scattered pieces of orange crate a mile down the road...

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em            G                      C             D
They took him down to Cape Canaveral and put him in place
Em                G              C        D
And they shot him in a satellite way into space
Em                G              C     D
They thought that cat was beyond human reach
Em              G               C     D      (NC)
Then they got a phone call from Miami Beach, sayin'..."MEOW”

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy

Em            G         C         D
The atom bomb fell just the other day
Em         G           C         D
The H-Bomb fell in the very same way
Em           G                 C        D
Russia went, England went, and then the U.S.A.
Em                 G                  C         D
The human race was finished without a chance to pray

Em               G        C         D
But the cat came back the very next day
Em           G        C                D
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
Em               G             C        D
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay 
Em   G    C    D
Awaaaayyyyy
