Katy Cruel
First, when I came to town
They called me the roving jewel
Now they've changed their tune
Call me Katy Cruel

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day

Oh, that I was where I would be
Then I'd be where I am not
Here I am where I must be
Where I would be, I cannot

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day

First when I came to town
They bought me bottles plenty
Now that I've settled down
They bring me the bottles empty

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day

I'll dye my petticoats red
And face them with the yellow
I'll tell all the boys
My own heart I will follow

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day

I know who I love
And I know who does love me
I know where I'm goin'
And I know who's goin' with me

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day

Oh, down the road I go
And through the boggy mire
Straight way through the field
And to my heart's desire

Hi-fiddle-la-lih-day
Hi-fil-it-ful-fi-do-day
