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