Stompin' Tom Connors – The Cat Came Back lyrics

Old Bill Lewis had troubles of his own
He had an old black cat that wouldn't leave home
Tried everything he could to give the cat away
He even gave him to the preacher and told him where to stay
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

Oh the cat was a terror so they though it was best
To give him to a fellow who was goin' out west
Now the train has smashed when it hit a broken rail
Not one single person lived to tell the tale
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

And the cat had company out in the back yard
Someone threw a boot and it hit him awful hard
It hit him right behind the ear and he thought there was a fight
When down came a chimney brick and drove hime outta sight
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

Oh the cat the birds all sittin' in a bunch
Upon the electric wire said he'd eat em for his lunch
He climbed up the pole till he reached the top
Put his foot on the electric wire tied him in a knot
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

We'll they gave him to a fella goin' up in a balloon
And they told the guy to take the cat to the moon
But the balloon it busted and everybody said tem miles away they picked the guy up dead
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

Now the farmer on the corner said he'd shoot the cat on sight
So he filled up his gun with nails and dynamite
He waited in the garden until the cat came around
Seven little pieces of the man was all they found
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't stay away

Yeah, they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back cause he wouldn't, no he wouldn't stay away.
