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

The Stones always ended their gigs in Richmond with this one. Brought the house down ! And that was 53 years ago in 1963.....Happy memories !!

Robert Steven

Status Quo do as well

Singularity

have you seen the video of them playing it live in 1972?

Willie Dixon on double bass! He's a lyricist himself and knows how to back up a story behind, it's not the easiest way out if you check his bass lines, always some tricky variations here and there to avoid a stereotype approach, it's the small details that makes it as they use to say.

I’ve grown to appreciate the off-beat, in this Rock’n’Roll classic.
