Sonny James - Cat Came Back lyrics

Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat who wouldn't leave his home
He tried and he tried to give that cat away
Even sent him to Australia and told him there to stay

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away

And then he gave that cat to a man in a balloon
He promised that he'd take him straight up the moon
The big balloon came down about 50 miles away
And where that man was living now, no one can really say

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away

And then they took that cat and they thought it would be best
To put him on a train that was going way out west
The train was speeding down the track and then it hit a rock
And all the people on that train suffered greatly from the shock...

The cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away

They never did stop trying to send that cat away
They had a different idea every single day
They even mailed him in a box the whole world around
But he always kept coming to his own home-ground

Because the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away

Oh yes, the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away

Away, away, away, away...
