Cat came back

Lyrics

Old Mr. Johnson had some troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat which wouldn’t leave his home
He tried and tried to give the cat away
He gave it to a man going far, far away
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

He gave it to a farmer, said he’d take it to a farm
The farmer drove the tractor with the cat under his arm
He dropped it in a cornfield, thought he’d surely get lost
The cat ate up the cornfield at the farmer’s cost
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

He gave it to a trucker that was going to Mexico
The trucker stopped for coffee at a “Trucker Stop & Go”
But while he was a’ paying he knew that he was stuck
He saw the cat jump in the cab and take off with his truck
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

He gave it to a pilot with a real nice plane
The pilot could just fly it far away in one day
But the pilot had his troubles he couldn’t touch down
Because the cat had the controls and made the pilot turn around
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

He gave it to a train conductor, put it on a train
New England’s where the train was headed up to Bangor Maine
He pull down on the brakes those wheels screeched on the track
And as it ran away, conductor said, “Here, kitty cat”
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

The cat was taken in by a lovely little girl
She loved that yellow cat, she made that cat her world
Now there is no reason for the cat to come back
Cuz it never has to leave and it likes it like that
Chorus: But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. It just couldn’t stay away
Away, Away, Away

It likes it where it is. It loves that little girl
