Long before the screen door slammed
She was out of Xenia
A stranger could have loved that town
But she had to leave

I wish I'd gotten to know her before I fell in love
I could say, "Who's to blame?"
Say, "Who's the man in this cautionary tale?"
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
'Til Kitten's out of jail

It was like a TV show
The way she stole that car
Easy now to criticize
Easy now to talk

I thought my luck was changing, I guess I was wrong
I could say, "Who's to blame?"
Say, "Who's the man in this cautionary tale?"
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
'Til Kitten's out of jail

Didn't want to be a slave
Just turned out that way

I wish I'd gotten to know her before I fell in love
I could say, "She's to blame"
Say, "She's the man in this cautionary tale"
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
'Til Kitten's out of jail
