Bye Bye Johnny
Chuck Berry Lyrics

She drew out all her money out of the Southern Trust
And put her little boy aboard a Greyhound bus
Leaving Louisiana for the Golden West
Down came the tears from her happiness
Her own little son name 'o Johnny B. Goode
Was gonna make some motion pictures out in Hollywood

Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Good bye Johnny B. Goode

She remembered taking money out from gathering crop
And buying Johnny's guitar at a broker shop
As long as he would play it by the railroad side
And wouldn't get in trouble he was satisfied
But never thought that there would come a day like this
When she would have to give her son a goodbye kiss

Going, bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Bye bye Johnny B. Goode

She finally got the letter she was dreaming of
Johnny wrote and told 'er he had fell in love
As soon as he was married he would bring her back
And build a mansion for 'em by the railroad track
So every time they heard the locomotive roar
They'd be a' standin', a' wavin' in the kitchen door

Howling, bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye bye Johnny
Good bye Johnny B. Goode

Μεγάλο ταλέντο! Αυτό είναι η Τέχνη, να μετατρέπει τη ζωή σε δημιουργία. Δεν θα το πίστευες ότι δεν είναι όλα αυθόρμητα, ότι προηγήθηκε μελέτη. Ο ακροατής και ο θεαατής νιώθει ότι είναι παρών στη δημιουργία του τραγουδιού !

Chuck told a story with each song and showed generations of guitarist how to play and do it with style without losing a beat.

I have just recently started to listen to Chuck Berry’s music and wow 🤩 what a talent!
I listen 🎧 when I go out running, so he helps me all these years later to get in shape. 😍


This is one of the best scene performances I've ever seen!
