Frankie
Mississippi John Hurt

Frankie was a good girl everybody know
She pay one hundred dollars for our one suit of clothes
He's a man and he done me wrong.

Frankie went down to the corner saloon, didn't go to be gone long
She peek through one of the keyholes and spied Albert in Alice's arms
He's my man and he done me wrong.

Frankie called Albert, Albert says "I don't hear."
"If you don't come to the woman you love, gonna haul you out of here"
You's my man and you done me wrong."

Frankie shot old Albert and she shot him three or four times
Says "Stroll back, I'd smoke my gun, let him see Albert dying
He's my man and he done me wrong."

Frankie and the judge walked down on the stand, walked out side to side
The judge says to Frankie "You're gonna be justified
For killing a man and he done you wrong."

Dark was the night, cold was on the ground
Little last word I heard Frankie say "I'd done laid old Albert down
He's my man and he done me wrong."

I ain't gonna tell no story and I ain't gonna tell no lie
Well an hour past about an hour ago, the girl called out his pride
He's your man and he done you wrong.
