Frankie and Johnny-Jimmie Rodgers
C position, standard tuning

Yodeled tag

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, he wouldn't do her wrong

Frankie went down to the corner, just for a bucket of beer
She says, "Mister bartender, has my lovin' Johnny been here?
He's my man, he wouldn't do me wrong."

"I don't wanta cause you no trouble, I ain't gonna tell you no lie.
I saw your lover an hour ago, with a girl named Nellie Blye.
He was your man, but he's doin' you wrong."

Frankie looked over the transom, she saw, to her surprise
There on a cot sat Johnny, making love to Nellie Blye
"He is my man, and he's doin' me wrong."

Yodeled tag

Frankie drew back her kimono, she took out her little .44
Rootie-toot-toot, three times she shot, right through that hardwood door
Shot her man, he was doin' her wrong

"Bring out your rubber-tired buggies, bring out the rubber-tired hacks.
I'm takin' my man to the graveyard, but I ain't gonna bring him back.
Lord, he was my man, then he done me wrong."

Guitar tag

"Bring out a thousand policemen, bring 'em around today,
To lock me down in the dungeon cell and throw that key away.
I shot my man, he was doin' me wrong."

Frankie said to the warden, "What are they going to do?"
The warden, he said to Frankie, "It's electric chair for you,
'Cause you shot your man, he was doin' you wrong."

This story has no moral, this story has no end
This story just goes to show that there ain' no good in men
He was her man, and he done her wrong
