"Alley Cat" as written by Charlie Daniels, William J. Digregorio, Charles Fred Hayward, John Louis Gavin and Bruce Ray Brown....
Every night downtown on the streets of the city
When the midnight hour is comin' on
You'll see her come slinkin' down the alley in a tight dress
She'll walk them streets till the break of dawn
Well she'll slip away fore the sun starts rising
When the daylight comes she's gonna be long gone

Don't you ever come down here looking for trouble
Cause trouble is the ladies' middle name
You may think you're bad but let me tell you somethin'
There ain't no way you're gonna play her game
She'll make you feel like a fool with a hole in your pocket
Like you've been run over by a choo choo train

She purrs and she growls and she rambles and she prowls
And she's evil and she's mean like a misery machine
She's a little bit of this and a whole lot of that like an alley cat

Better stay away from the midnight lady
She'll leave you standing on the corner with a mess of the blues
She's an accident looking for a place to happen
She'll make you an offer that you can't refuse
If she ever gets them claws into you
She'll turn you every which a way but loose

And she purrs and she growls...
[ guitar ]
Well she purrs and she growls...
