Back in Louisiana down near New Orleans
High up in the hills among the evergreens
In a log cabin made of earth and wood
Lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
He never ever learned to read and write so well
But he could play the guitar just like ringin' a bell
Go go, go Johnny go go go
Go, go Johnny go go go
Go Johnny go go go
Go go, go Johnny go go go
Go Johnny go go
Johnny B. Goode

He would carry his guitar in a gunny sack
And sit beneath the trees near the railroad track
Down beneath the trees sittin' in the shade
Listenin' to the rhythm that the drivers made
And all the people passin' by would say
My my how that country boy can play
Go go etc

Guit solo

His momma said to him 'One day you'll be a man
And you will be the leader of a big roll band
People will come from miles around and listen to you play until the sun goes down
Then one day you'll see your name in lights
Sayin' Johnny B. Goode Tonite
Go etc to close
