She Caught The Katy – Taj Mahal (Original Studio Recordings – 1968)

“She Caught the Katy (And Left Me a Mule To Ride)” is a blues standard written by Taj Mahal and James Rachell. The song was first recorded for Taj Mahal’s 1968 album The Natch’l Blues, and is one of Mahal’s most famous tunes. It has since been covered many times and is included on the soundtrack for the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers (the song greets Jake Blues as he leaves prison, at the beginning of the movie). According to John Belushi’s widow, it was Belushi’s favorite blues song.
