He was her man, but he done her wrong



Frankie and Johnnie went walking
John in his brand new suit
then "oh good lawd" said Frankie
"don't my Johnnie look real cute"
he was her man, but he done her wrong

Frankie she was a good woman
and Johnnie was a good man
and every dollar that she made
went right into Johnnie's hand
he was her man, but he done her wrong

Frankie went down to the corner
just for a bucket of beer
she said to the fat bartender
has my lovinest man been here
he was her man, but he done her wrong

I don't want to cause you no trouble
I don't want to tell you no lie
but I saw your man an hour ago
with a gal named Alice Bly
he was her man, but he done her wrong

Frankie looked the transom
and found to her great surprise
that there on the bed sat Johnnie
a lovin up Alice Bly
he was her man, but he done her wrong

Frankie drew back her kimono
she took out her little forty-four
root-a-toot-toot three times she shot
right through that hardwood floor
she shot her man cause he done her wrong

roll me over easy
roll me over slow
roll me on de right side
cause de bullet hurt me so
I was her man, but I done her wrong

the judge said to the jury
it's as plain as plain can be
this woman shot her lover
it's murder in the second degree
he was her man, though he done her wrong

this story has no moral
this story has no end
this story only goes to show
that there ain't no good in men
they'll do you wrong, just as sure as you're born
