Story Behind the Song

For Episode 220 of the paranormal podcast See You On The Other Side, "True Crime Halloween: Scarier Than Superstition" http://www.othersidepodcast.com/220

Lyrics

Frankie and Johnny was lovers, oh, how they could love
They sworn to be true to each other, true as the skies above
He was he man, he wouldn't do her no wrong.

Frankie went down to the corner, to get her a stein of beer
She asked the big old fat bartender, "Have my lovin' Johnny been here?
He is my man, he wouldn't do her no wrong. "

Said, "I ain't gonna tell you no story, I ain't gonna tell you no lie
He was here 'bout an hour ago with that gal they call Nellie Bly,
He was your man, but he's been doin' you wrong."

Frankie went down to the hotel, she didn't go down there for fun
Under her long red kimono she carried her .44 gun
Lookin' for the man that was doin' her wrong.

Johnny pulled off his Stetson hat, hollered, "Now, baby, don't shoot!"
Frankie pressed her finger on the trigger and that gun went "rrrroooolietoo"
She killed her man, 'cause he was doin' her wrong

This is the end of my story, this is the end of my song
Frankie's down in the county jail, poor thing, down there all alone
She killed her man, 'cause he was doin' her wrong.
She killed her man, 'cause he was doin' her wrong.
She killed her man, 'cause he'd been doin' her wrong.
