Frankie and Johnny were lovers
C                          C7
Oh lord how they could love
F
They swore to be true to each other
F                   Cdim7 C
Just as true as the stars above

A7          D7  G7
He was her man
                C ( C7 F Fm C ) G7
But he did her wrong

C
Frankie went down to the bar room
C                        C7
To buy her Johnny a beer
F
Said to the bartender
F                  Cdim7  C
Has my ever-lovin' Johnny been here?

A7        D7  G7
He is my man 
                   C ( C7 F Fm C ) G7    
But he's doin' me wrong.

C
I cannot tell you no story 
C                       C7
I cannot tell you no lie
F
Johnny left about an hour ago
F                Cdim7  C
With a gal named Nellie Bly

A7          D7  G7 
He is your man
                    C ( C7 F Fm C ) G7
But he's doin' you wrong.


C
Frankie went down The Broadway
C                            C7
With a forty four in her hand
F
Said "Stand aside all you chorus gals
F             Cdim7  C        
I'm a-lookin' for my man!"

A7        D7  G7
He is my man
                   C ( C7 F Fm C ) G7
But he's doin' me wrong.

C
The first time she shot him he staggered
C                                 C7
The next time she shot him he fell
F
The last time she shot him oh lord
F                       Cdim7   C   
There was another man's face in hell

A7          D7  G7
He was her man 
                C ( C7 F Fm C ) G7
But he did her wrong.

This is how I play it...with a bit of the melody cross-picked over the chords.
The lyrics are a variant on one of those collected by John and Alan Lomax and 
the chords are a little jazzier than the standard versions.
