Well you know Katie Mae is a good girl
Folks say, "She don't run around at night"
Well you know Katie Mae is a good girl
I made a mistake and she don't run around at night
Yes, and you can bet your last dollar, Katie Mae will treat you right

Well some folks say, "She must be a Cadillac"
But I say, "She got to be a T-model Ford"
You know some folks say, "She must be a Cadillac"
I say, "She got to be a T-model Ford"
Yes she got the shape all right but she can't carry no heavy load

And she walks this life
Her Daddy got oil wells in her backyard
And she walks this life
She got oil wells in her backyard
You know every time she get to working
That woman she never have to work too hard

I say, "Goodbye, goodbye poor Katie"
Here's the last words I'm got to say
Hey na na na na poor Katie
Last words I'm got to say
'Cause if I don't meet you tomorrow
I'm going get you early in the next day
