  Typical riff repeated at beginning of every line of the verses:

G|---5---3h4-----|
D|-5---5-----5---|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

The chorus.  R.V plays single chords, the backing guitar and bass changes to G on 'was' and the  D on 'never' 

[Verse 1]
G 
  I was walkin' down the street, mindin' my own affair
G 
  When two policemen grabbed me, unaware
G 
  He says "Is your name Henry?" I says "Why sure"
G                                         G7                              
  He says "You the boy I bin lookin' for"

[Chorus]
N.C.        B9 C9 C9  C9      G      F#7 G7 G7  G7
I was framed,      framed, I was blamed,     framed
        D             C#9 D9 C7       C7               F#7 G7
Well, I never knew    nothin,   but I always get framed        Oh, framed

[Verse 2]
G 
  They took him in the line up and let those bright lights shine,
G 
  There was ten poor souls like me in that line
G 
  I knew I was a victim of someone's evil plan
G                                         G7 
  When a stool pigeon walked in and says "That's your man"

[Chorus]
N.C.        B9 C9              G      F#7 G7
I was framed,    framed, I was blamed,      oh framed, framed, framed
         D         C#9 D9   C7                G      F#7 G7
Well, I never knew nothin,   but I always get framed        Oh, framed      

[Verse 3]
G 
  Well, the prosecutin' attorney started a'prosecutin' me
G 
  Man, that cat didn't give me the one, but the third degree
G  
  He says "Where were you on the night of July 1953?"
G                                         G7
  "Man I was just home just a tweedly-dee"

[Chorus] 
N.C.        B9 C9             G         F#7 G7
I was framed     oh framed, I was blamed,    oh framed, framed, framed,
       D          C#9 D9  C7      C7         G      F#7 G7
Well I never knew nothin,   but I always get framed        Oh, framed, Oh framed
