Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was walkin' down the street mindin' my own affair
When two policemen grabbed me, unaware
He say, "Is your name Henry?" I says, "Why sure"
He says, "You the boy we've been lookin' for"
Verse 2
Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get blamed, framed
Verse 3
They took him in the line up and let those bright lights shine
There was ten poor souls like me in that line
I knew I was a victim of someone's evil plan
When a stool pidgeon walked in and says, "That's the man"
Verse 4
Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get blamed, framed
Verse 5
Well, the prosecutor turned and started a-prosecutin' me
Man, that cat didn't give me the third degree
He says, "Where were you on the night of July 1953?"
I said I was home in bed, he says "jury, this man is lyring"
Verse 6
Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get blamed, framed
Verse 7
I denied charge of robbing the liquor store
Denied the charge of carrying a forty-four
Denied the charge of vagrancy, too
But when the judge came down, poured whiskey on my head
Turned around to the jury and said "Convict this man, he a drunk," what could I do?
Verse 8
Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get blamed, framed, feel my pain
Verse 9
I was framed (he was blamed)
I was framed (he was blamed)
I got framed (he was blamed)
