Frankie And Johnny
Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Jimmie Rodgers
G 
Now Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts
Oh Lord how they did love
C 
Swore to be true to each other true as the stars  
G 
above
 
He was her  
D7 
man but he wouldn't do her  
G 
wrong
Now Frankie went down to the corner
Just for a bucket of beer
 
She  
C 
said Mr. Bartender has my loving Johnny been  
G 
here
 
He's my  
D7 
man he wouldn't do me  
G 
wrong
I don't want to cause you no trouble
Woman I ain't gonna lie
 
But  
C 
I saw your lover an hour ago with a girl named Nellie  
G 
Blie
 
He's your  
D7 
man but he's doing you  
G 
wrong
Now Frankie looked over the transom
She saw to her surprise
 
There  
C 
on the couch sat Johnny making love to Nellie  
G 
Blie
 
He's my  
D7 
man but he's doing me  
G 
wrong
Frankie threw back her Kimono
Took out her little 44
 
Rutty  
C 
too-too three times she shot right through that hardwood  
G 
door
 
Shot her  
D7 
man he was doing her  
G 
wrong
Now bring out your rubber tired hearses
Bring out your rubber tired hack
 
I'm  
C 
taken my man to the graveyard and I ain't gonna bring him  
G 
back
 
He was my  
D7 
man but he done me  
G 
wrong
Bring round a thousand policemen
Bring 'em around today
 
To  
C 
lock me down in that dungeon cell and throw that key  
G 
away
 
I shot my  
D7 
man he was doing me  
G 
wrong
Now Frankie she said to the warden
What are they going to do
 
The  
C 
warden he said to Frankie it's the electric chair for  
G 
you
 
You shot your  
D7 
man he was doing you  
G 
wrong
Now this story has no moral
This story has no end
 
This  
C 
story just goes to show that there ain't no good in  
G 
man
 
He was her  
D7 
man but he done her  
G 
wrong
