ZZ Top singles chronology

"Francine" is a song by the American rock group ZZ Top from their album Rio Grande Mud, released in 1971. "Francine" gave ZZ Top their first bona fide hit reaching #69 on the Billboards charts. It is the only single released from the Rio Grande Mud album. Dusty Hill also recorded a Spanish sung version as well, though Gibbons frequently handles the vocals on stage. Various official ZZ Top releases throughout the years, beginning in 1972, have used the alternative spelling "Francene", especially on the various 45 releases both within and outside the United States. The song was actually written by Steve Perron and Kenny Cordray. They were not given credit for many years.[2]
