Kitty's Back is the third song on the album The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. It describes, in contrast to the happy-in-spite-of-everything lovers of "4th of July", the depressed and unlucky characters of the seedy part of town. Catlong, Kitty, Sally, Big Pretty and Jack Knife are the only characters introduced by name, and the song focuses on Catlong (usually referred to as "Cat") and Kitty, his ex-girlfriend, who "left to marry some top cat" (referring to Big Pretty, and contrasting with her boyfriend, Catlong). In the end, Catlong can not resist Kitty when she returns because "she's so soft, she's so blue," and, even though he "knows his Kitty's been untrue" he "just sits back and sighs/Ooh, what can I do; ooh, what can I do."
"Catlong sighs holding Kitty's black tooth"
