Yeah, you know Katie Mae is a good girl
Folks, and she don't run around at night
Yeah, you know Katie Mae is a good girl
Folks, and she don't run around at night
Yeah, you know you can bet your last dollar
Katie Mae will treat you right

Yeah, you know I try to give that woman
Everything in the world she need
That's why she don't do nothing
But lay up in the bed and read

You know she walks just like
She got oil wells in her backyard
Yes, you'll never hear that woman whoop and holler and cry
And talking 'bout these times being hard

You know some folks say she must be a Cadillac
But I say she must be a T-model Ford
Yeah, you know some folks say she must be a Cadillac
But I say she must be a T-model Ford
Yeah, you know she got the shape all right
But she can't carry no heavy load

I say goodbye, goodbye poor Katie Mae
These are the last words that I got to say
I say goodbye, goodbye poor Katie Mae
These are the last words I got to say
Yes, if I don't see you tomorrow
I hope I'll meet you early the next day
