      C                               G               C
Now, just like everybody, you've got troubles of your own,
    C                                G               C
But let me tell you, mister, of the sorrow I have known.
   Am                            C              F
I had an old, gray cat that I couldn't bear to keep.
     C                             G                   C
He spent the nights a-howlin' and he wouldn't let me sleep.


      C                       G               C
So I put him in a box and I tied it up quite well.
   C                             G                C
I had some fellas help me and I paid them not to tell.
 Am              C                      F
They put it in a boxcar, the westbound 710.
     C                         G          C
The train pulled away and was never seen again.


       C                   G
But the cat came back the very next day.
         G                     C
Yes, the cat came back and he wouldn't stay away.
  C           G
Meow, kitty. Meow, so pretty.
 G                         Am   G   C
Meow, such a pity, but the cat came back.


    C                           G             C
We took him to the harbor and we put him on a ship.
  C                                G       C
We bid him, "Bon voyage," for that oceanic trip.
 Am                          C               F
The captain was obliging and glad to help us out.
  C                                  G               C
They tied him to the anchor so that there could be no doubt.


   C                                 G                C
Well, we heard the sad report of that mighty storm at sea
   C                                      G           C
And, though it may sound heartless, I was happy as can be.
 Am                                C              F
The paper said the ship went down beneath a heavy gale
  C                                G             C
And not a single soul was left to tell the awful tale.


       C                   G
But the cat came back the very next day.
         G                     C
Yes, the cat came back and he wouldn't stay away.
  C           G
Meow, kitty. Meow, so pretty.
 G                         Am   G   C
Meow, such a pity, but the cat came back.


  C                             G                C
Then we gave him to a scientist destined for the moon.
   C                                G           C
The cat was used for ballast in an outer space balloon.
  Am                                  C                  F
I guess you know what happened, that balloon is up there still
  C                                      G              C
And early that next morning, guess what came across the hill.



Meow, that's right.


 C                                 G                 C
Now, everyone in town was sworn to shoot that cat on sight.
  C                              G                C
With that crazy cat around, you couldn't sleep at night.
 Am              C                                F
We even formed a posse just to hunt that critter down.
  C                                     G              C
You could hear the guns a-blazin' as we ran him out of town.


       C                   G
But the cat came back the very next day.
         G                     C
Yes, the cat came back and he wouldn't stay away.
  C           G
Meow, kitty. Meow, so pretty.
 G                         Am   G   C
Meow, such a pity, but the cat came back.


  C                                 G             C
Here's the moral to our story: When looking for a friend, 
 C                                 G              C
If you get an old, gray cat, he's yours until the end.
 Am                           C               F
You'll never drag him off, no matter what you do.
 C                                   G               C
Bear in mind this dreadful tale that we have told to you.


       C                   G
But the cat came back the very next day.
         G                     C
Yes, the cat came back and he wouldn't stay away.
  C           G
Meow, kitty. Meow, so pretty.
 G                         Am   G   C
Meow, such a pity, but the cat came back.
