"Mean Eyed Cat"

I gave my woman half my money at the general store,

I said, "Now buy a little groceries and don't spend no more."

But she paid ten dollars for a ten cent hat,

And bought some store-bought cat food for that mean-eyed cat.



When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my head,

There wasn't a cotton pickin' thing on her side of the bed.

I found a little ol' note, where her head belonged.

It said, "Dear John, honey, baby, I'm long gone."



When I heard a whistle blowin' and the big wheels a-turnin',

I was scared as I could be.

I put on my overalls and I headed to town.

Gonna bring her back with me.



I asked the man down at 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'll be dad blamed,

I believe I did see her leavin' on the east-bound train."



I bought a round-trip ticket on the east bound train,

I was broke as I could be,

But when I come back, I gotta buy another ticket,

Gonna bring her back with me.



Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas,

And I worked up the guts to call my mother-in-law,

She said, "I'll tell you where she is, if you act right.

She's workin' four-to-twelve at Trucker's World tonight."



Well, when I walked in she saw me and she took off her apron,

And she grabbed her goin'-home hat

She bought a ticket with her tips. Now we're curled up on the sofa,

Me and her and that mean-eyed cat.
