Johnny Be 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 ringing 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
Or 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
The people passing by, they would stop and say
Oh, my, but that little country boy could play

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

No disrespect to Elvis... but Chuck is the TRUE king of Rock n' Roll.

C S

Elvis would agree

Jeffrey Kaufmann

@Alec McGrath of Canada Elvis is called the King cause he had more hit songs than any other Rock n Roll star

Abracarogue Arcane

Well a king of rock'n'roll that can barely play guitar is no king in my book. Best rock'n'roll white male singer Elvis maybe is.

Well elvis should still be the king.. since everyone important still has to be white..
