Frankie came looking to find me Yes, she wasn't looking for fun For in her sweet loving hand She was toting' a .44 gun To shoot her man if he was doing' her wrong [Verse 4] Well Frankie looked into the bar room And right there in front of her eyes There was her loving Johnny Making love to that Nellie Bly I was her man, she caught me doing her wrong [Verse 5] Frankie, I beg, please don't shoot me Well they'll put you away in a cell You know they'll put you where the cold wind blows From the hottest corner of hell I'm your man, I know I done you wrong [Verse 6] Easy roll me over, real easy Easy roll me over, real slow Roll me over real gently Cause my wound hurts me so Well I was her man Well I done her wrong [Verse 7] Well Frankie told Johnny Well this is the end of my song I was her man, well I done her wrong Well , hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Done her wrong
