Am              C               Am
It's a hanging day, in Wolfcity (?), Wyoming,
   C                    F   C
in Wolfcity, Wyoming, in 1894
               G
There's gonna drop Cat Balou
 (silence)                     C
Right through the gallows floor

         Am              C
Well she killed a man in Wolfcity, Wyoming,
   C
In Wolfcity, Wyoming
    F                  C
She killed a man, it's true
            G
And that is why they're hanging
  (silence)               C
They're hanging Cat Balou

             C
She has the smile of an angel
     Am
She fights like the devil
    F          G
The eyes of an angel
    F          G
She fights like the devil
    C
The face of an angel
    Am
I say she's the devil
       G                         C
She's mean and evil through and through

          G           C
Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou
        G                        C
She's mean and evil through and through

           Am
Then there came to town
   C                 C
A gun deadly and frightening
   C                 C
A gun quicker than lightning
     F                 C
The fastest gun you've seen
          G                (silence)
It was the gun in the hand of
                       C
Steely Kitchelean (???)

          Am
Just one look at him
     C                 C
And folks starting to shake
  C              C
Wild, wild as a snake
  F                   C
Proud and fierce and mean
            G                  (silence)
There was no man who was tougher
                       C
As tough as Kitchelean

            C
He had the eyes of a killer
    Am
As cold as the devil
     F         G
The look of a killer
     F         G
The look of the devil
     C
The face of a killer
     Am
That man was the devil
      G                   C
Just wild and ornery and mean

          G         C
Kitchelean, Kitchelean
       G                      C
The fastest gun you've ever seen

(repeat the same chords as before)
Then she road away
Just to where now was a mystery
But Cat roamed into history
Lent (?) her legend rule
She was the queen of the outlaws
Her highness Cat Balou

Cat Balou, Cat Balou
And now the story is all through
Cat Balou, Cat Balou
Say farewell to Cat Balou
