Charley Patton - Frankie & Albert Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Frankie was a good girl
  • Everybody knows
  • Paid one hundred dollars
  • For Albert's new suit of clothes
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Albert said, "I'm leaving you
  • Won't be gone for long
  • Don't wait up for me
  • A-worry about me when I'm gone"
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Frankie went down to the corner saloon
  • Get a bucket of beer
  • Said to the bartender
  • "Has my lovin' man been here?"
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • "Well, I ain't gonna tell you no stories
  • I ain't gonna tell you no lies
  • I saw Albert an hour ago
  • With a gal named Alice Bly"
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Frankie went down to 12th Street
  • Lookin' up through the window high
  • She saw her Albert there
  • Lovin' up Alice Bly
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Frankie pulled out a pistol
  • Pulled out a forty-four
  • Gun went off a rooty-toot-toot
  • And Albert fell on the floor
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Frankie got down upon her knees
  • Took Albert into her lap
  • Started to hug and kiss him
  • But there was no bringin' him back
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • "Gimme a thousand policemen
  • Throw me into a cell
  • I shot my Albert dead
  • And now I'm goin' to hell
  • He was my man but he done me wrong"
  • Judge said to the jury
  • "Plain as a thing can be
  • A woman shot her lover down
  • Murder in the second degree"
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
  • Frankie went to the scaffold
  • Calm as a girl could be
  • Turned her eyes up towards the heavens
  • Said, "Nearer, my God, to Thee"
  • He was her man but he done her wrong
