Lyrics

Well you know Katie Mae's a good girl
Folks say she don't run around at night
Well you know Katie Mae's a good girl
Folks say she don't run around at night
Yes and you can bet your last dollar
Katie Mae will treat you right

Now some folks say she must be a Cadillac
But I say she got to be a T-model Ford
Now some folks say she must be a Cadillac
But I say she got to be a T-model Ford
Yeah she got the shape all right
But she just can't carry no heavy load

And she walks just like
Her daddy got oil-wells in his back yard
And she walks just like
Her daddy got oil-wells in his back yard
And you know every time she gets working
That woman she never has to work too hard

I said goodbye, goodbye poor Katie
These are the last words I gotta say
I said goodbye, goodbye poor Katie
These are the last words I gotta say
'Cause if I don't reach you tomorrow
I'm gonna get to you early in the next day
