TITLE: The Cat Came Back
Lyrics and Chords

Little Bennie had a cat that they wouldn't let him keep
So he put her up for sale at a price he thought was cheap
He took her to a neighbor to ask him for advice
He said, "Leave the kitty here, she can help me with the mice"

/ E - B7 - / - - E - / A - E - / B7 - - - /

But the cat came back, she wouldn't stay away
She was sitting on the porch the very next day
The cat came back, she didn't want to roam
The very next day it was Home, Sweet Home

/ " / " / " / B7 - EA E /

Then Bennie met a man who was driving way out west
He would take the cat along as a special honored guest
The steering wheel was wobbly, he drove into a tree
The car was just a total wreck as anyone could see


So Bennie bought a gun from the Human Cannonball
He put the cat inside with tri-nitro-toluol
When he pulled the trigger, the cannon made a roar
The neighbors all surrendered 'cause they thought it was a war


Then Bennie gave the cat to a man who had a bomb
When he took the cat away, she was acting cool and calm
And then the bomb exploded, it made an awful sound
They searched and searched for ages but the man was never found
