Frankie And Johnny
Recorded by Hank Snow
written by Jimmie Rodgers

Now Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts

Oh Lord how they did love
Swore to be true to each other true as the stars above
D7 G
He was her man but he wouldn't do her wrong

Now Frankie went down to the corner

Just for a bucket of beer
She said Mr. Bartender has my loving Johnny been here
D7 G
He's my man he wouldn't do me wrong

I don't want to cause you no trouble

Woman I ain't gonna lie
But I saw your lover an hour ago with a girl named Nellie Blie
D7 G
He's your man but he's doing you wrong

Now Frankie looked over the transom

She saw to her surprise
There on the couch sat Johnny making love to Nellie Blie
D7 G
He's my man but he's doing me wrong

Frankie threw back her Kimono

Took out her little 44
Rutty too-too three times she shot right through that hardwood door
D7 G
Shot her man he was doing her wrong

Now bring out your rubber tired hearses

Bring out your rubber tired hack
I'm taken my man to the graveyard and I ain't gonna bring him back
D7 G
He was my man but he done me wrong

Bring round a thousand policemen

Bring 'em around today
To lock me down in that dungeon cell and throw that key away
D7 G
I shot my man he was doing me wrong

Now Frankie she said to the warden

What are they going to do
The warden he said to Frankie it's the electric chair for you
D7 G
You shot your man he was doing you wrong

Now this story has no moral

This story has no end
This story just goes to show that there ain't no good in man
D7 G
He was her man but he done her wrong
