The cat came back

Now old Uncle John had troubles of his own
He had an ol' yellow cat that wouldn't leave home
He tried everything he knew to keep the cat away
Even gave it to a preacher an' he told it for to stay

But the cat came back, the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now the cat was a terror and he thought it was best
To give it to a fella who was headin' out west
The train went around the corner an' it hit a broken rail
Not a soul aboard the train lived to tell the tale

But the cat came back, the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

He gave the ol' cat to the man in a balloon
He told him to leave it with the man in the moon
The balloon it busted and everybody said
Ten miles away, they picked the man up dead

But the cat came back, the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now the farmer on the corner's gonna kill the cat on site
He's loaded up his gun full of nails an' dynamite
He waited in the garden 'til the cat came 'round
Seven little pieces of the man was all they found

But the cat came back, the cat came back
I thought he was a goner but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away
