Frankie And Johnny

Frankie And Johnny
music by Boyd Bunch
lyric by Bert Leighton

Frankie and Johnny were lovers, lordy how they could love.

Frankie was loyal to Johnny, true as all the stars above.

He was her man but he was doing her wrong.

Frankie went down to the barroom to pick up a bucket of beer.

Frankie did ask the bartender has my lover Johnny been here?

He is my man, I think he's doing me wrong.

Ain't gonna tell you no stories, ain't gonna tell you no lies.

I seen your lover, Johnny, with a gal named Nelly Bly.

He's your man, I think he's doing you wrong.

Frankie looked over the transom, found to her great surprise,

There on the bed lay Johnny, making love to Nellie Blyu.

He's her man, he's doing her wrong.

Frankie drew back her kimono, took out a big fourty-four.

Root toot toot, that gal did shoot right through that hardwood floor.

She shot her man, 'cause he was doing her wrong...
