Reliable people (Sure!), friendly as can be (So they say!) When they say "Howdy", they mean it (Hah!) Yes, they're neighbourly (Yup-yup-yup-yup-yup-yup-yup!) If only Cat had behaved These folks would befriend her If Cat had behaved Their hearts they would lend her But Cat was depraved To Hell now they'll send her She could have lived like others do Cat Ballou, wicked through and through They'll now be hangin' Cat Ballou Then there came to town a gun deadly and frightnin' A gun quicker than lightnin', fastest gun you've seen It was the gun in the hand of Steel-eyed Kid Shelleen Just one look at him had folks startin' to booger Wild, wild as a cougar, proud and fierce and mean There was no man who was tougher Tough as Kid Shelleen He had the eyes of a killer Cold as a devil The look of a killer The look of a devil The face of a killer That man was the Devil Just wild and ornery and mean Kid Shelleen, Kid Shell-ee-ee-een The fastest gun you've ever seen There are teardrops in her heart But they can't make her cry There are teardrops in her heart But they can't make her cry She's lost all the kin that she's known And the tears will turn into stone All the teardrops in her heart 'Cause they can't make her cry It's not very hard to weep When you're a little girl It's not very hard to weep When you're a little girl But they made a little girl feel Like a woman made of steel Makes no difference how they try They'll never make her cry So that mournful day Became part of a legend The real start of a legend Known as Cat Ballou They'll never make her cry The day the law filled her heart With a hate that grew Makes no difference how they try They'll never make her cry When you have no tears Then you've gotta have somethin' Hate really is somethin' Blood is what you need They'll never make her cry And Cat Ballou made her mind up To make this country bleed Makes no difference how they try They'll never make her cry It took a crafty female brain To stage the hold-up of a train She planned it to the last detail Until it couldn't fail This dashing, daring desperado Led her gang with cool bravado They would follow where she'd lead They made the country bleed Round and round and round they went Till man and gal and beast were spent Round and round and round they rode Oh, what an episode So she rode away, just where now is a mystery But Cat rode into history and her legend grew She was the queen of the outlaws Her Highness Cat Ballou Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou Well, our story now is through Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou We'll say farewell to Cat Ballou (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2018) ******************** As recorded by BOBBY DARIN: It's a hangin' day in Wolf City, Wyomin' Wolf City, Wyomin', eighteen-ninety-four They're gonna drop Cat Ballou Through the gallows floor She has the smile of an angel The eyes of an angel The face of an angel But she's mean and evil through and through Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou Yes, she's mean and evil through and through Now, she killed a man in Wolf City, Wyomin' Wolf City, Wyomin', killed a man it's true And that is why they're hangin' Hangin' Cat Ballou She has the smile of an angel Yes, the eyes of an angel And the face of an angel But she's mean and evil through and through Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou Yes, she's mean and evil through and through With her outlaw band, they're now tellin' the story Now tellin' the story, how she rode the plain The wildest gal in the West Since Calamity Jane She's got the smile of an angel Mmmm, the eyes of an angel And the face of an angel But she's mean and evil through and through Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou Yes, she's mean and evil through and through Now, today's the day that she's goin' to glory Yes, she's goin' to glory for the way she sinned They'll be a-speedin' her soul To the wayward wind, Hallelujah!
