Well there's a hellcat, loose cat, hear it wail
It can stop you down the street, you cannot get away
Well it's gonna get to you, got the demon power
You got to run, run, brother you know your soul's on fire
You got to run, run, brother you know your soul's on fire

Well there's a strange, strange feeling chilling your hands
A shadow in your doorway, freeze you where you stand
You play your dice with the devil, now it's much too late
Well don't you know you got a hellcat on your trail
Well don't you know you got a hellcat on your trail

The sound that haunts you from the dark will dawn
Don't go away no more when the morning comes
There's a step on the stairs, a storm in your sails
That you know you got a hellcat by the tail
Yeah, you've done and got a hellcat on your trail

Oh yeah

Well there's a hellcat, loose cat, hear it moan
Stalking your shadow all night long
It's the darkest feeling this side of hell
Well don't you know you got a hellcat by the tail
You know you've got a hellcat by the tail
Well hellcat
Well hellcat
Well hellcat
Well hellcat
