"He's my man, but he done me wrong."
Frankie went to the bartender, asked for a glass of beer
Frankie told the bartender, "Ask me, my lovin' man been here?
He's my man, but he done me wrong."
"Don't tell me no story, don't tell me no lie.
Did my lovin' man stop here, did he keep on hikin' by?
That's my man, but he done me wrong."
"Listen here now, Frankie, hate to see you moan.
Why in the world don't you, Frankie, why don't you go back home?
I know that's your man, but he done you wrong."
I ain't gon' tell you no story, I ain't gon' tell you no lie.
Your lovin' man, he did not stop here, he musta kept on hikin' by.
He was your man, but he done you wrong."
"Bring 'long your rubber-tire buggy, bring 'long your rubber-tire hack.
Fourteen men went to the cemetery, but only thirteen mens come back.
They left my man, for he done me wrong.
They left my man, for he done me wrong."
