Katie Lyrics

I come up from the bottom rung
I been hunting and I had my gun
Wind was still, things were quiet
I called for Katie there was no reply

I checked the shed
I checked the barn
I opened the door and there she was
In the arms of my friend Joe
And she wasn't wearing many clothes

Katie, Katie
What'd I do?
I was so in love with you
Worked my fingers to the bone
I never even wanted this old farm

Joe tried to talk
He just coughed
My heart stopped
The gun went off
Katie screamed out his name
And then the gun went off again

Katie, Katie
What'd I do?
I was so in love with you
Worked my fingers to the bone
I never even wanted this old farm

I wrapped 'em up in gunny sacks
I hitched a wagon
Threw 'em in the back
I buried that Joe down by the creek
I laid my Katie 'neath a hickory tree

Katie, Katie
What'd I do?
I was so in love with you
Worked my fingers to the bone
I never even wanted this old farm

Now there's houses up all around this farm
Staring into new backyards
Every day they come by
But I won't sell
And I won't say why

Katie, Katie
What'd I do?
I was so in love with you
Worked my fingers to the bone
I never even wanted this old farm
