Rockabilly Frankie & Johnny

 

This is a fun version of the American folk song Frankie & Johnny

 

The real Johnny was 19 Year old  Albert and died 3 days after 22 yr old Frankie shot him twice when he attacked her with a knife.

He was her pimp and she was acquited for justifable homicide.

She never lived it down and the song haunted all her days.

The killing happened in St Louis.
