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...(more)
