  • With her outlaw band theyre now tellin a story
  • Now tellin a story how she rode the plain
  • The wildest gal in the we-est
  • Since calamity jane
  • And todays the day that shes goin to glory
  • Shes goin to glory for the way she sinned
  • Theyll be a-speedin her soul
  • On a wayward wind
  • She has the smile of an angel
  • (fights like the devil)
  • The eyes of an angel
  • (bites like the devil)
  • The face of an angel
  • (I say shes the devil)
  • (shes mean and evil through and through)
  • Cat ballou (cat ballou)
  • Cat ball-ou-ou-ou (cat ballou)
  • Shes mean and evil through and through
  • Cat ballou, cat ball-ou-ou-ou
  • Shes mean and evil through and through
