Mean Eyed Cat Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '55 House Of Cash, BMI

I gave my woman half my money at the general store
I said now buy a little grocers and don't spend no more
Then she paid ten dollars for a ten cent hat
And got some store brought cat food for a mean eyed cat
When I gave her ten more dollars for a oneway ticket she was mad as she could be
Then I bet ten more if she ever left she'd come a crawling back to me
[ guitar ]
When I woke up this morning and I turned my head
There was a cotton pickin' thing on her side of the bed
I found a little ole note where her head belonged
It said dear John honey baby I'm long gone
When I heard the whisle blowin' and the big wheels a turnin'
I was scared as I could be
I put on my overalls and I head for town I'm gonna bring her back with me
[ guitar ]
I asked the man down the station if he'd seen her there
I told him all about her pretty eyes and long blonde hair
He spit his tobacco said I'd be dead blamed
I believe I did see her leavin' on an eastbound train
I bought a round trip ticket on an eastbound train I was broke as I could be
But when I come back I got to buy another ticket gonna bring her back with me
