J.W. Crowell was a hell of a man  
 
He played two nights a week in a hillbilly band  
 
He played at the Ice House on Telephone Road  
 
He played in the yard just to lighten his load  
 
  
 
Chorus  
 
  
 
Hey J.W play that Frauline  
 
Let Rodney sit in, hell, heís goiní on nine  
 
His fingers are bleediní, but heís keepiní good time  
 
Playiní Black Diamond Strings, heíll never quit tryiní

Causette told Ďem both  

 
You boys pack t up, itís time to go home  
 
We got church in the morniní, itís cominí up dawn  
 
Donít make me say it again or Iím gone  
 
You can stay here forever, but youíre gonna walk home

Last verse is not frogline. It's Frauline (spelling?) an old standard in the folk/country genre.

I always thought a frawline was a french w***e.

I'm pretty sure that it's a french w***e. Or something like that. Wasn't that chic from "The Sound of Music" named Frauline Maria. Frenchw***e Maria?
