Thread Name: Origins: History on Frankie and Johnny
Subject: History on Frankie and Johnny
Does anyone know the story behind this song? Found the old thread that said it was about Frankie Silver, but when i did the research, found it to not be the case. Frankie Silver was married to Charlie Silver, and did him in with an axe. Anyone out there have more info? Couldn't find a thing on google.
