Deep down in Louisianna close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods the evergreens
There stand a country cabin made of clay and wood
Where lives a young country boy Johnny B. Goode
He never ever learned to read or write a book so well
But he play his guitar just like ringing a bell

Go go, go Johnny go go go!
Go Johnny go go go!
Go Johnny go go go!

Go Johnny go go go!
Aah Johnny B. Goode!

He to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Sit beneath the trees by the railroad track
Oh sitting and playing in the shade
Strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by used to stop and say
oh that country boy play

Go go, go Johnny go go go!
Go Johnny go go go!
Go Johnny go go go!
Go Johnny go go go!

Aah Johnny B. Goode!

Well his mama told him someday you will �a man

And you will be the leader of a big old
Many people coming from miles around
To you play your music till the sun goes down
Maybe some day your name will be in light
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 go go!

Aah Johnny B.Goode!
