Frankie and Johnny-Champion Jack Dupree
Self-accompanied on piano in F, Pete Brown, tenor sax, Ennis Lowery, guitar, Wendell Marshall, bass, and Willie Jones, drums

Well, Frankie, Frankie told Johnny, "Lord, I want a diamond ring."
Oh, Johnny told Frankie, "I'll get you most anything."

Oh, Johnny went down to the German, on Rampart and Dumaine
He walked in the store, the German had a diamond in his hand

Tee-nah, tee-nah-nah, tee-nah, nah-nee-nah
Tee-nah-nah-nah-nah, tee-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah

Oh, Johnny, Johnny shot the German, and he shot him through the head
He ran out the door and he fell on the sidewalk dead

When Frankie, Frankie got the news that the German was dead
She come runnin', hollerin', Lord, talkin' all out her head

Well, Johnny started to runnnin', Lord, and he didn't know where to go
They found Johnny hidin' in the grocery store next door

Well, the policemen hand-cuffed and beat him, and they took Johnny out of sight
He said, "That's all right, Frankie, everything gonna be all right."

Tee-nah, tee-nah-nee-nah, tee-nah-nah, nah-nee-nah
Tee-nah-nah-nah-nah, tee-nah-nee-nah-nee-nah
