Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Not sure who originally recorded this tune, but this is how its played by Jack Johnson
during a radio studio recording.  Need to listen to the song to get the strumming rhythm.
(Only noted are where the chord changes...play the chord through the entire verse(s) 
you reach the next chord)

*CHORUS*
     G
Well Frankie and Albert were sweethearts

And lordy how they could love
     C
They vowed to love one another

Baby beneath those stars above
             D  C
It was her man
                         G  D
But he was doing her wrong

*VERSE 1*
     G
Well Frankie went down to the barroom

To fetch herself a bucket of beer
    C
The bartender said Miss Frankie you know

Your lovin' man been here
              D  C
It was your man
                         G  D
But he was doing you wrong

*VERSE 2*
    G
The bartender said Miss Frankie

Well girl I can't tell you no lies
     C
Your husband left about an hour ago

With that Hussy named Nelly Bly
              D  C
It was your man
                         G  D
But he was doing you wrong

*VERSE 3*
     G
Well Frankie she cried, she cried, she cried

She said now lordy what have I done
C
I done give enough love to my man

He done took my love and run
            D  C
It was my man
                        G  D
But he was doing me wrong

*VERSE 4*
     G
Well Albert saw Frankie comin'

He said lordy don't you shoot
    C
But out from under that red kimono

The gun went rooty-toot-toot
                D  C
She shot that man
                             G  D
Because he was doing her wrong

*VERSE 5*
        G
Boo-hoo boo-hoo boo-hoo

She said baby what have I done
C
I done shot the only man I loved

With a Colt 44 gun
            D  C
I shot my man
                            G  D
Because he was doing me wrong

*VERSE 6*
        G
And the sheriff come quickly, quickly, quickly

He done clipped her at the trail
C
He said now look here woman you done shot your man

Stick you in the county jail
                     D  C
Talkin' about your man
                         G  D
But he was doing you wrong

*REPEAT CHORUS*
