The Sons Of Katie Elder

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
From the four winds we have come, Katie Elder
Four brothers on the run, Katie Elder
All your little ones have grown and we've reaped what we have sown
Yes, we've reaped what we have sown, Katie Elder

Chorus:
Oh, the wind blows like the devil when it blows
And the boy grows up and like the wind he goes
So mothers teach your sons to not live by a gun
June Carter: And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder
And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder

Johnny:
I think you'd understand, Katie Elder
That a man is just a man, Katie Elder
They're bound to cut him down if he doesn't stand his ground
But they haven't cut us down yet, Katie Elder

Chorus:
Oh, the wind blows like the devil when it blows
And the boy grows up and like the wind he goes
So mothers teach your sons to not live by a gun
June: And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder
And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder

Johnny:
We'll try to make it right, Katie Elder
No more hiding in the night, Katie Elder
I vow it on your grave by all the things we never gave
And mistakes that we all made Katie Elder

Chorus:
Oh, the wind blows like the devil when it blows
And the boy grows up and like the wind he goes
So mothers teach your sons to not live by a gun
June: And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder
And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder
Johnny: And to not live like the sons of Katie Elder
