Johnny B. Goode Lyrics

Way down 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
Never learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like ringing a bell

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

He carry his guitar in a gunny sack
And go sit beneath the trees by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers used to see him sitting in the shade
Stroming to the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by 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 he would be a man
And you will be the leader of a great big band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear him play his music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name would be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight

Go go, go go go go
i sad go, sin, sing
sing my song, one more time let me hear sing my song
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Johnny B. Goodie
