When I first came to town,
they called me the roving jewel
Now they've changed their tune;
Call me Katie Cruel

Through the woods I run
Through the boggy mire
Straightaway down the road
Till I come to my heart's desire

If I was what I would be,
Then I'd be what I am not
Here I am where I must be
Where I would be, I cannot

When I first came to town,
They bought me drinks a-plenty
Now they've changed their tune
Bring me bottles empty

If I was what I would be
Then I'd be what I am not
Here I am, where I must be
Where I would be, I cannot

When I first came to town
They called me the roving jewel
Now they've changed their tune;
Call me Katie Cruel.

    My OpinionI think this song is about being yourself. People are to quick to judge one another.
