She Caught the Katy
The Blues Brothers Lyrics


She caught the Katy
And left me a mule to ride
She caught the Katy
And left me a mule to ride
Now my baby caught the Katy
Left me a mule to ride
The train pulled out
I swung on behind
Crazy 'bout her
That hard headed woman of mine

Man, my baby's long
Great gosh almighty my baby's tall
You know my baby's long
Great gosh almighty my baby's tall
Yeah my baby she's long
My baby she's tall
She's sleepin' with her head in the kitchen
And her feet's out in the hall
Crazy 'bout her
That hard headed woman of mine

Well I love my baby
She's so fine
But I wish she'd come and see me some time
She don't believe in our love, ah
Look what a hole I'm in
She don't believe what I'm sayin'
Kid look what a shape I'm in
Huh-huh

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
I swung on behind
Crazy 'bout that hard headed woman
Hard headed woman of mine
Huh-huh, huh-huh

She's sleepin' with her head in the kitchen
And her feet's out in the hall
Crazy 'bout her

Well I love my baby
She's so fine
But I wish she'd come and see me some time
She don't believe in our love, ah
Look whatta hole I'm in
She don't believe what I'm sayin'

Hard headed woman of mine

As if John wasn't already an unbelievable talent, that's Dan Akryode on the harp. They brought the best out in each other. Just phenomenal pair of talents.

Ben Pezzot

@Genghis Khan unfortunately u are correct dan said John during the time of the blues Brothers movie filming John was out of control

Genghis Khan

They also brought out the worst in each other, drug wise.

Ben Pezzot

@Greg Hicks Jim said John really didn't want a career in football he cared more about comedy than football

Greg Hicks

@Ben Pezzot He played at Weaton College in Illinois. Not really D1 talent being a 5'9 170 lb linebacker.

This may not the most famous Blues Bros song, but I'd argue it's their finest. Absolute perfection.
