Frankie And Johnny

Johnny Cash

 G
 Well now Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts
They were true as a blue, blue sky
 C
 He was a long-legged guitar-picker
 G
With a wicked, wondering eye
 DG
But he was her man nearly all of the time
Well Johnny he packed up a leaven'
But he promised he'd be back
 C
He said he had a little picking' to do
 G
A little further down the track
 DG
He said,"I'm your man, I wouldn't do you wrong"
Well Frankie curled up on the sofa
Thinkin' about her man
 CG
 Far away couples were dancin' to the music of his band
 DG
He was Frankie's man he wasn't doin' her wrong
Then in the front door walked a redhead
Johnny saw her right away
 CG
She came down by the bandstand to watch him while he played
 DG
He was Frankie's man but she was far away
He sang another song to the redhead
She smiled back at him
 C
Then he came and sat at her table
 G
Where the lights were low and dim
 DG
What Frankie didn't know wouldn't hurt her none
Then the redhead jumped up and slapped him
She slapped him a time or two
 CG
She said,"I'm Frankie's sister and I was checking up on you"
 DG
"If you're her man you'd better treat her right"
Well the moral of this story
Is be good but carry a stick
 C
 Sometimes it looks like a guitar-picker
 G
Just can't tell what to pick
 DG
He was Frankie's man and he still ain't done her wrong

Enjoy!
