    "Frankie And Johnny" Lyrics

    Alice Stuart

    Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts
    Lordy, how they could love
    Swore to be true to each other
    Yeah, true to the skies above
    He was her man, wouldn't do her no wrong

    And Frankie and Johnny went walkin'
    And Johnny had on a new suit
    Yeah, Frankie spent one-hundred dollar notes
    Just to make her man look cute
    He was her man, he wouldn't do her no wrong

    Frankie went over to the barroom
    Stopped for a bottle of beer
    Said to the old bartender man
    "Has my lover Johnny man been here?"
    "He was my man, Lord, but he'd been doin' me wrong, so wrong."

    Yeah, Frankie looked over the transom door
    And there to her great surprise
    There sat her lover man Johnny
    Makin' love to Nellie Bly
    He was her man, but he was doin' her wrong

    Well, Frankie lifted up her kimono dress
    And she drew (ladaladalala) out a little .44
    She shot once, twice, three times (three times) she shot him
    And through that hardwood (door) floor
    Yeah, she shot her man (yeah he was her man)
    Well, but he been doin' her wrong yeah

    He said," roll me over so careful ah
    Roll me over so slow,
    Oh roll me off to my left hand side,
    Because your bullet hurt me so,
    I was your man, but I been doin' you wrong."

    Play it Chris!

    (Instrumental & trombone & guitar solo)

    Well, they sent for Frankie's mother
    Come down to Huddie's saloon
    To see what's the matter with her boy
    She come down, Frankie looked up at her
    Here what she said:

    She said, "Oh Mrs. Johnson, oh forgive me please

    Well I killed your lovin' son, Johnny
    But I'm down on my bended knee
    I shot your man, 'cause he was doin' me wrong ah'.

    She said, "I'll forgive you Frankie,
    She said, I'll forgive you not, not
    For killin' lovin' son Johnny,
    He's the only support that I've got,
    'Lord, you shot my man and he was doin' you wrong."

    Well, the last time I seen Frankie
    She was a-sittin' in a dungeon cell
    She would be there lonely, herself
    With no one there to care
    She shot her man, a-he'd been doin' her wrong, so wrong

    Well, bring out the rubber tired (hearse) so long
    You gotta bring out your pony and trap
    Yeah, they're gonna take Johnny, Johnny to the cemetery (graveyard)
    And he ain't never coming back
    Well, he was her man
    Oh, but he been doin' her wrong, so wrong

    Well, the story ain't got no moral, Lordy
    But the story ain't got no end
    Well, the story only goes to show
    That there ain't no damn good in men!
    She shot her man (he was her man)
    But he was doin' her wrong

    Yeah, ba-da-ba-ba-da-ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba.

    Thank you very much.
