You tore through my life like a tornado looking for a trailer park
And your white trash mishmash short of cash culture clash hit the mark
We met on a Monday, here it is Sunday
It happened so fast, they said it wouldn't last
Yeah, but what do they know?
Why can't they say so now?

I was rackin' up points in the dives and the joints on the edge of town
Shootin' pool, playin' cool, trying get some other fool to buy another round
Yeah, you rattle my brain like a runaway train
You scattered my past like a dynamite blast
You're some kind of woman Frankie
Stand up and take a bow

Frankie please don't ever give me the deep freeze
And your p's and q's and don'ts and do's are all the news to light my fuse
Don't change nothing
Not on a dare
Ever since you hit here I've been walking on air
I didn't see you coming Frankie
Now I can't let you go

You stole into my heart like a thief with the cutting torch, did you not?
Your can't miss, first kiss told me this, don't resist what you got
All out of nowhere, I'm caught in your crosshair
Shagged, fragged, bagged, tagged, it's like I lost every battle
But still I won the war

Frankie please don't ever give me the deep freeze
In the time we've got lets tie the knot and fire the shot that hits the spot
Lord have mercy, hallowed be
It ain't a pretty picture but it's working on me
I'm a fool for you Frankie don't let me let you go
You're one in a million Frankie, that's all I need you to know

Follow Rodney Crowell:


Rodney J. Crowell (born August 7, 1950) is a American country music singer/songwriter who is considered to be part of both the alternative country and the mainstream country music camps. For three years he was part of Emmylou Harris’ “Hot Band”; later he gained mainstream popularity as a solo performer with a series of critcally-claimed albums released during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Crowell was born in Houston, Texas to James Walter Crowell and Addie Cauzette Willoughby. A contemporary of Steve Earle and, like Earle, influenced by the (songwriting) greats Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Crowell played guitar and sang for three years in Emmylou Harris’ “Hot Band”.

He was married to Rosanne Cash (daughter of famous singer/guitarist Johnny Cash) from 1979 to 1992 and had a great influence on her career, producing most of her albums during that period. They collaborated on a number of duets, including 1988’s “It’s Such a Small World.” Though Crowell and Cash are now divorced, they remain on friendly terms, performing together occasionally. Six years after the breakdown of his marriage to Rosanne he married Claudia Church.

Although best known as a songwriter and alternative country artist, Crowell enjoyed mainstream popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s. His critically acclaimed album, 1988’s Diamonds and Dirt, produced five No.
