Frankies Man Johnny
Capo 1st fret A Well, now, Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts; They were true as a blue, blue sky. D A He was a long-legged guitar picker with a wicked wanderin' eye, E A But he was her man nearly all of the time. A Well, Johnny, he packed up to leave her, But he promised he'd be back. D A He said he had a little pickin' to do a little farther down the track. E A He said, "I'm your man; I wouldn't do you wrong." A Well, Frankie curled up on the sofa, Thinkin' about her man. D A Far away the couples were dancin' to the music of his band. E A He was Frankie's man; he wasn't doin' her wrong. A Then in the front door walked a redhead, Johnny saw her right away. D A She came down by the bandstand to watch him while he played. E A He was Frankie's man, but she was far away. A He sang ev'ry song to the redhead, She smiled back at him. D A The he came and sat by her table, where the lights were low and dim. E A What Frankie didn't know wouldn't hurt her none. A Then the redhead jumped up an slapped him; She slapped him a time or two. D A She said, "I'm Frankie's sister and I was checkin' up on you. E A If you're her man you better treat her right." A Well, the moral of this story Is be good but carry a stick. D A Sometimes it looks like a guitar picker just can't tell what to pick. E A He was Frankie's man, and he still ain't done her wrong.
