Frankie & Johnny & Albert & Stack & Billy, part 3

Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts . . . 
Everybody knows
She paid a hundred dollars
For Albert’s suit of clothes

Confused? Well, keep listening as our young heroes run the gamut of name changes, spelling variants, and gender switches. We’ll surely come to a . . . conclusion . . . somewhere along the way as a long line of witnesses weigh in with their take on the, er, matter. Being sworn in now is William Thomas Dupree, while Charlie Feathers, Tom Darby and Jimmie Tarlton wait in the corridor.


Champion Jack Dupree • Frankie & Johnny • 1958
