​She Caught The Katy (And Left Me A Mule To Ride)

This song is by The Youngbloods and appears on the album High On A Ridge Top (1972).

She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
Yeah, my baby caught the Katy, left me a mule to ride
The train pulled out, I jumped on behind
'Cause I'm crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman of mine.

My baby she's long, great God, she's mighty, she's tall
Well, my baby she's long, great God, she's mighty, she's tall
My baby she's long, yeah she's tall
She sleeps with her head in the kitchen and her big feet in the hall
And I'm crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman of mine.

Oh, now I love my baby, she's so fine
Yeah, I wish she'd come and see me some time
If you don't believe I love her, what a fool I've been
Don't believe I'm singin', look at the hole I'm in.

My baby she's long, great God, she's mighty and she's tall
Well, my baby she's long, long, great God, she's mighty, she's tall
My baby she's long and she's tall
She sleeps with her head in the kitchen and her big feet in the hall
But I'm crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman of mine.

Oh, now I love my baby, she's so fine
Well, I wish she'd come and see me some time
If you don't believe I love her, what a fool I've been
Don't believe I'm singin', look at the hole I'm in.

Oh, she caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
Yeah, now she caught the Katy, left me a mule to ride
The train pulled out, peolple, I don't jump on behind
Well, I'm crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman, hard headed woman of mine.

Oh baby, yeah.
