FRANKIE BLUES as recorded by Bessie Smith with Robert Robbins (violin) & Irving Johns (piano) April 8th 1924 New York Frankie was a good fellow to everyone he knew, I had some trouble with Frankie, that made me feel so blue; He packed his grip for a trip and said, "I'm leavin' now, honey dear!". He called to see me next day; I was mad and this is what I said - I'm weary now, but I won't be worried long, I miss sweet Frankie since he's been gone, yes I do! He went away, he know he done me wrong! I tell you, Now I'm weepin' like a willow tree Since sweet Frankie's went away from me. Where he's gone I do not know, He was seen some place near Baltimore. Yes, I will pay most fair reward If you will find Frankie, Lord. I been to 'Frisco, Hackensack, Tryin' to find Frankie and bring him back. Somebody find that sweet Frankie of mine, Ease my mind! Yes, I will pay most fair reward If you will find Frankie, Lord. I phoned my angel, he didn't hear, I phoned Saint Peter, send a prayer down here! Somebody find that sweet Frankie of mine And ease my mind! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2015)
