Johhny B. Goode
Chuck Berry Lyrics

Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like a-ringin' a bell

Go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by, they would stop and say
"Oh my that little country boy could play"

Go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Johnny B. Goode

His mother told him "Someday you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying "Johnny B. Goode tonight"

Go go
Go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Johnny B. Goode

I love the fact that during the last 30 years of his life, chuck never took a band with him on tour, just hiring local guys because everyone knew his songs anyway

Gary Gruber

This was not a good thing. If you check his album anthology, for as great as his music was, he NEVER did a stereo studio recording off ANY of his great hits. I saw him with a pickup band back in 1975 and it was miserable. He booted his other guitarist off stage after the second ro third song.

Quinn Manning

Thats insane and incredible. For them to play as in sync as they did is wild.

Genevieve Barton

I would have loved to see him sit down with Jack White. That would be amazing.
