    Not bad, but look at the version from Blues Brother's . I think it's better

    Thirty-five years listening to this great song and never understood the "Katy" reference. Thank you @HODBass and @Tucanista!

    The "Katy" in the song refers to the Missouri Kansas and Texas railroad, whose nickname was the Katy.

    Hi LondonLouis, I once heard a guy sing "Caddy" instead of Katy. So that would be a - well - a Cadillac maybe? Makes sense to me: Caddy and a mule....

    What would the "Katy" be which she caught? (am genuinely curious).
