Dandy of the Day:

Frankie and Johnny Were lovers, 
O Lordy how they could love 
They swore to be true to each other, 
As true as the stars above, 
He was her man, but he did her wrong. 

Johnny said I’ve got to leave you, 
but I won’t be very long 
Don’t you wait up for me honey, 
don’t worry while I’m gone, 
Cause I’m your man, I’ll never do you wrong. 

Ain’t gonna ask you no questions, 
ain’t gonna tell you no lies, 
Your Johnny man was here about an hour ago, 
with a gal named Nellie Bly, 
He is your man, but he’s a doin’ you wrong 

Now Frankie’s dad was a Policeman, 
and he owned a forty four, 
Frankie went home and got that gun, 
from her father’s dresser drawer, 
She loved her man, but he’s a doin her wrong 

Frankie came lookin’ for Johnny, 
But she wasn’t looking for fun 
For in her sweet and loving hand 
She was totin’ a 44 gun 
To shoot her man if he was doin’ her wrong 

Well, Frankie walked into the bar room 
And right there in front of her eyes 
There was her lyin’ Johnny 
Making love to that Nellie Bly 
he was her man, she caught him doing her wrong. 

Roll out your rubber tired hearse boys, 
Roll out your rubber tired hack, 
There’s 11 men goin’ to the grave yard today, 
and there’s only ten a coming back, 
He was her man, but he did her wrong! 

Frankie and Johnny Were lovers, 
O Lordy how they could love 
They swore to be true to each other, 
As true as the stars above, 
He was her man, but he did her wrong. 
Well this is the end of the story, 
Well this is the end of my song 
The story might be true or the story might be false 
But you listened to this song, 
He was her man, but he done her wrong 

Young men listen to this story, 
young men listen to this song, 
If you love a little gal, and you tell her so, 
You’d better never do her wrong, 
You know the song, so never do her wrong. 
Never do her wrong.
