My car goes Chicago
Every weekend I pick up some cargo
I think I know the bloody way by now, Frankie
Turn the god damn radio down, thank you
Pull over, count the money
But don’t count the thirty in the glove box buddy
That’s for to buy Lucille some clothes

Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
He shot me down
(He shot me down)

Work zones, double fines
Don’t pass the double lines
Trailer McDonald’s rest stop trailer double wide
I saw a man hit my mom one time, really
I hurt him so damn bad I had to hide in Jersey
Called my mama told her
In the dresser
There’s ten or twenty dollars but there ain’t no lesser
That’s for to take my sister to the picture show

Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
He shot me down
(He shot me down)
Sha nay na sha nay na na na

Slip make a fender shine
Frankie you’re a friend of mine
Got me off a bender after long legged Brenda died
I thought we might be on a roll this time Frankie
I could have swore the box said Hollywood blanks but
You see my mama
Please tell her
I left a little rock in a box in the cellar
That’s for to wear till kingdom come

Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
Bang bang bang went Frankie’s gun
(He shot me down Lucille)
He shot me down
(He shot me down)
Sha nay na sha nay na na na

Yodle ay hee hooo
