Frankie Lee Sims was born on April 30, 1917 in New Orleans, Louisiana.[1] He claimed he was born on February 29, 1906,[2] but 1906 was not a leap year and April 30, 1917 is generally accepted as his birth date.[3] He was the nephew of Texas blues singer Texas Alexander,[4] and the cousin of Texan guitarist Lightnin' Hopkins.[1] Both Sims's parents were "accomplished guitarists".[3] His family moved to Marshall, Texas in the late 1920s, and at the age of 12 he learnt to play guitar from Texas blues musician Little Hat Jones.[1][4] In the late 1930s Sims had a duel career of a teacher in Palestine, Texas on weekdays and a guitarist at local dances and parties on weekends. When the US entered the Second World War at the end of 1941, Sims enlisted, becoming a Marine for three years. After the war Sims made Dallas his home where he pursued a fulltime career in music.[3]
