Johnny B Goode

Chuck Berry

4:4 Key:4:4 Key:C

VERSE 1:
Deep [C]down in Louisiana, close to New Orleans,
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens,
There [F]stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where [C]lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who [G]never ever learned to read or write so well,
But he could [C]play the guitar just like a ringin' a bell.

CHORUS:
[C]Go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [F] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [G] | / / / / | Johnny B. [C]Goode

VERSE 2:
He [C]used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the trees by the railroad tracks
Old [F]engineers would see him sittin' in the shade,
Str[C]ummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made
When [G]people passed him by they would stop and say,
Oh [C]my but that little country boy could play`

CHORUS:
[C]Go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [F] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [G] | / / / / | Johnny B. [C]Goode

VERSE 3:
His [C]mother told him, 'someday you will be a man,
You will be the leader of a big ol' band.
Many [F]people comin' from miles around
Will [C]hear you play your music when the sun go down.
Maybe [G]someday your name'll be in lights,
Sayin' [C]"Johnny B. Goode tonight"

CHORUS:
[C]Go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [F] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [C] | / / / / |
Go, Johnny, go! Go! [G] | / / / / | Johnny B. [C]Goode
