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

I can't believe so many people don't understand what they are hearing and watching. You will never ever see this talent again.

@clint cox Prince died at 58, Chuck Berry died at 91, maybe, this could be the reason why...who dies young makes more sensation.

Pete Montsion

@clint cox He was honored in 3 different ceremonies. Did you want the world to plant a flag on the moon also?

Princes dies and everyone goes crazy this badass dies and not a word there loss!!

@Pete Montsion Never said and never even thought John Mayer is a legend !...should I feel ashamed of being 83 ?... don't worry you're gonna catch up in no time !...by the way, I was born in 1955...and now, while I'm writing down these few poetic words, I find myself thinking of the Tom Wait's song !!!

Pete Montsion

@Giulio Grifi idc
BB King also cited John Mayer as a legend.
Oops.
Poor you.
And you are 83?

Ricordo la prima volta che vidi mr.Berry in concerto dal vivo.....quando tornai a casa, il mio caro papa' disse: sembri che hai visto il messia!
In realta" i suoi concerti erano per me terapeutici.
