"She Caught The Katy" as written by and Taj/rachell Mahal....
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride

Well, my baby caught the Katy, she left me a mule to ride
The train pulled out and I swung on behind
I'm crazy 'bout her that hard headed woman of mine

Man, my baby's long, great gosh almighty, she's tall
And you know my baby's long great gosh almighty my baby's tall

Well, you know my baby, she's long, my baby she's tall
She's sleeps with her head in the kitchen and her feet kicks out in the hall
And I'm still crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman of mine

I love my baby, she's so fine, I wish she'd come to see me some time
Guess she don't believe in our love, look whatta hole I'm in
Guess she don't believe what I'm sayin', look whatta shape I'm in

She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride

Well, my baby caught the Katy, left me a mule to ride
The train pulled out and I swung on behind
Well, I'm crazy 'bout her, that hard headed woman
Hard headed woman of mine

    General CommentThis song's about somebody's wife who's trying to leave him behind and start a new life, but he manages to catch the train by swinging onto caboose on a mule. It's also about the Katy, or the MKT, which is the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railway. There are still places in the Midwest where the old train stations still are. This is the opening to the "Blues Brothers".

    General CommentCorrection: 1st line verse 2 should read "... great gosh a-mighty ..." a common, mild epithet.
