DT Lyrics:

Subject: happy? - Oct 15 (Frankie and Albert)

One of the better theories of the song's basis (Harry Smith was one proponent) links "Frankie and Albert (aka Johnnie)" to the murder of Allen Britt by Frankie Baker in St. Louis, Mosouri, on 10/15/1899 . She was jealous of his relationship with Alice Pryor. See The Ballad Index
