Frankie and Johnny  Lonnie Donegan

Ah well Frankie [E]and Johnny were sweethearts
Lordy how they could love
Ah, they [A]swore to be true to each other
Just as true as the skies [E]above
He was her [B7]man, he wouldn't do her [E]wrong.
[E]Well Frankie and Johnny went walking
Johnny had on a new suit
Yeah [A]Frankie spent one hundred dollars
Just to make her man look [E]cute
He was her [B7]man, he wouldn't do her[E] wrong.
"[E]Well Frankie see, I'm gonna leave you
But I wont be very long.
Ah, [A]don't you wait up for me honey,
Don't you worry while I'm [E]gone.
I'm your [B7]man, I wouldn't do you [E]wrong."
[E]So Frankie walked down to the Huddy saloon
And she called for a bottle of beer.
And she [A]said to the old bar-tender man
"Has my loving Johnny man been [E]here?
He was my [B7]man, but he been doing me w[E]rong, so wrong."
"[E]Well see I don't want to cause you no trouble,
Well I don't want to tell you no lies
Yeah [A]I see your Johnny
Making love with Nelly [E]Bly.
He was your [B7]man, but he been doing you [E]wrong, so wrong."
[E]So Frankie walked over to the transit-door
And there to her great surprise
There [A]sat her lover Johnny
Making love with Nelly [E]Bly
He was her [B7]man, but he being her [E]wrong, so wrong.
[E]So as Nelly lifted up her kimono dress
Drew a little 44
Hey [A]rum-tum-tum, three times she shot him,
Right through that hardwood [E]door
She shot he[B7]r man, but he been doing he[E]r wrong, so wrong.
[E]He said "Roll me over so careful
Hey, roll me over so slow
Hey, [A]roll me onto my left side
Your bullets they hurt me [E]so
I was your [B7]man, but I been doing your [E]wrong, so wrong".
E (Spoken fast over E chord)
They sent for Johnny's mother, she come down to the Huddy saloon asking what's the
matter with her boy and
what's he talking about
[E]He said "Oh Mrs Johnson
See what your son has got
Don't be [A]rockin', a' don't be stompin'
But your little Johnny-boy's been [E]shot
He was her [B7]man, but he been doing her [E]wrong, so wrong"
[E]She said "oh Mrs Johnson
Oh forgive me please
I know I [A]killed your loving son Johnny
But I'm down on a bended [E]knee
I shot your [B7]man, but he was doing me [E]wrong, so wrong.
[E]She said "I forgive you Frankie"
She said "I forgive you not"
"Oh you [A]killed my loving son Johnny
He was the only boy I [E]got
You shot my [B7]man, ah he was doing you [E]wrong, so wrong."
[E]And last time I see Frankie
She was still in a dungeon cell
All day [A]weeping, all day moaning
Cos his soul is going dow[E]n to hell
She shot her man, but he was doing her wrong, so wrong.
[E]She said "Now bring your drum and tired hearses
And a bring up your pony and trap
I'm gonna [A]takea' my Johnny to the grave yard
I ain'ta gonna bring him [E]back
He was my [B7]man, but he been doing me [E]wrong, so wrong".
[E]Hey the story aint had no moral
Well the story aint got no end
Well the [A]story only goes to show show you
There's no damn good in [E]men
She shot her [B7]man, and he was doing her [E]wrong.
