Frankie Lyrics

Frankie - Mississippi John Hurt/Preston Young

Written by:J. Hurt

Frankie was a good girl everybody know

 

She pay one hundred dollars for our one suit of clothes

He's a man and he done me wrong

 

Frankie went down to the corner saloon didn't go to be gone long

 

She peek through one of the keyholes and 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 stroll back I'd smoke my gun let him see Albert dying

He's my man and he done me wrong

 

Frankie and the Judge walked down on the stand walked out side to side

The Judge says to Frankie you're gonna be justified

For killing a man and he done you wrong

 

Dark was the night cold was on the ground

 

Little last word I heard Frankie say I'd done laid old Albert down

He's my man and he done me wrong

 

I ain't gonna tell no story and I ain't gonna tell no lie

Well an hour past about an hour ago the girl called out his pride

 

He's your man and he done you wrong
