Frankie-Mississippi John Hurt
Spanish tuning

Frankie was a good girl, everybody knows
She paid one hundred dollars, for Albert, one suit of clothes
He's her man and he done her wrong

Frankie went down to the corner saloon, didn't go to be gone long
She peeped through the keyhole in the door, spied Albert in Alice's arms
"He's my man, and he done me wrong."

Frankie called Albert. Albert says, "I don't hear."
"If you don't come to the woman you love, gonna haul you out of here,
You's my man, and you done me wrong."

Frankie shot old Albert, and she shot him three or four times
Says, "Throw back, out the smoke of my gun, let me see, is Albert dyin'?
He's my man, and he done me wrong."

Frankie and the judge walked down the stand, they walked out side to side
The judge says to Frankie, "You're gonna be justified,
For killin' a man, and he done you wrong."

Dark was the night, cold was on the ground
The last word I heard Frankie say, "I done laid old Albert down,
He's my man, and he done me wrong."

"I ain't gon' tell no story, and I ain't gon' tell no lie.
Well, Albert passed 'bout an hour ago with a girl they call Alice Prye.
He's your man, and he done you wrong."
