Hank Snow – Frankie And Johnny Lyrics

Album: Blues for My Blue Eyes

Written by Jimmie Rodgers
Recorded by Hank Snow

Now Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts oh Lord how they could love
Swore to be true to each other true as the stars above
He was her man but he was doin' 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
He is 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 man bout an hour ago with a girl named Nellie Blie
He is your man but he's doin' you wrong
Now Frankie looked over the transom she saw to her surprise
There on the cab sat Johnny making love to Nellie Blie
He is my man but he's doin' me wrong
Frankie drew back her komona, took out her ole 44
Rooty toot-toot three times, right through that hardwood door
she Shot her man, he was doin' her wrong

Now bring out your rubber tired hearses, bring out the rubber tied hatch
I'm taken my man to the graveyard but i ain't gonna bring him back
He was my man but he was doin me wrong
Bring round a thousand policemen bring 'em around today
To lock me down in that jail cell and throw that key away
I shot my man he was doin' me wrong
Now Frankie she said to the warden what are they goin' to do
The warden he said to Frankie it's the electric chair for you
You shot your man he was doin' 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
He was her man but he done her wrong
