Well now friends just lend an ear

For you're now about to hear
The ballad of cat ballou
It's a song that's newly made

And professus and the shade
And the sunrise kid are singin' it for you


Cat ballou, cat ballou

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 killed a man in wolf city, wyomin'
Wolf city, wyomin', killed a man it's true

And that is why they're a-hangin'
Hangin' cat ballou


She has the smile of an angel
(fights like the devil)
The eyes of an angel

(bites like the devil)
The face of an angel
(I say she's the devil)

(she's mean and evil through and through)

Cat ballou, cat ball-ou-ou-ou

She's mean and evil through and through

With her outlaw band they're now tellin' a story

Now tellin' a story how she rode the plain
The wildest gal in the we-est
Since calamity jane


And today's the day that she's goin' to glory
She's goin' to glory for the way she sinned

They'll be a-speedin' her soul
On a wayward wind


She has the smile of an angel
(fights like the devil)
The eyes of an angel

(bites like the devil)
The face of an angel
(I say she's the devil)

(she's mean and evil through and through)

Cat ballou (cat ballou)

Cat ball-ou-ou-ou (cat ballou)
She's mean and evil through and through


Cat ballou, cat ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through
