Mississippi John Hurt Frankie


Frankie was a good girl, everybody knows,
she paid one hundred dollars for Albert's suit of
clothes
He's her man, and he did her wrong

Frankie went down to the corner saloon, she ordered her
a glass of beer,
she asked the barkeeper, "Gas my lovin' Albert been
here?"
"He been here, but he's gone again"

"Ain't gonna tell you no story, Frankie, I ain't gonna
tell you no lie"
Says, "Albert a-passed about a hour ago, with a girl
you call Alice Frye
He's your man, and he's doin' you wrong

Frankie went down to the corner saloon, she didn't go
to be gone long
She peeked through keyhole in the door, spied Albert in
Alice's arm
He's my man, and you's doin' me wrong

Frankie called Albert, she shot him three or four
times,
says, "Stand back, I'm smokin' my gun, let me see is
Albert dyin'
He's my man, and he did me wrong"

Frankie and the judge walked outta the stand, and
walked out side by side
The judge says, "Frankie, you're gonna be justified,
killin' a man, and he did you wrong"

Frankie was a good girl, everybody know,
she paid one hundred dollars for Albert's suit of
clothes
He's her man, but he did her wrong

Said, "Turn me over, mother, turn me over slow,
it may be my last time, you won't turn me no more
He's my man, and he did me wrong"

Says, Frankie was a good girl, everybody know,
she paid one hundred dollars for Albert's suit of
clothes
He's her man, but he did her wrong
