The cat came back

Old man Johnson had troubles of his own
He had an old cat that wouldn't leave home.
He tried and he tried just to keep the cat away
Even give him to a feller and he took him far away,
But the cat came back

      Yeah the cat came back
      The very next day
      The cat came back
      Thought he was a goner, but the cat came back
      'cause he wouldn't stay away

Johnson had a neigbor ?said he'd shoot the cat on sight
And he loaded up a shotgun full of nails and dynamite
Then he waited and he waited for the cat to come around
Bur forty seven pieces of the man was all they found
And the cat came back

- There are several intervening verses

Well he took him to Canaveral on a sunny afternoon
And he put him on a rocket and he sent him to the moon
but the cat came back

     * Refrain twice
