The Moral of the Story

Love me some Johnny Cash:

Frankie’s Man by Johnny Cash

Well now Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts
They were true as a blue blue sky

He was a long-legged guitar picker with a wicked wanderin’ eye
But he was her man nearly all of the time

Well Johnny he packed up to leave her but he promised he’d be back
He said he had a little pickin’ to do a little farther down the track

He said I’m your man I wouldn’t do you wrong
Well Frankie curled up on the sofa thinkin’ about her man

Far away the couples were dancing to the music of his band
He was Frankie’s man he wadn’t doin’ her wrong

Then in the front door walked a redhead Johnny saw her right away
She came down by the bandstand to watch him while he played

He was Frankie’s man but she was far away
He sang every song to the redhead she smiled back at him

Then he came and sat at her table where the lights were low and dim
What Frankie didn’t know wouldn’t hurt her none

Then the redhead jumped up and slapped him she slapped him a time or two
She said I’m Frankie’s sister and I was checking up on you

If you’re her man you better treat her right

Well the moral of this story is be good but carry a stick
Sometimes it looks like a guitar picker just can’t tell what to pick

He was Frankie’s man and he still ain’t done her wrong


This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
