Johnny B Goode

Beatles

 A
Deep down in Louisianna

Close to New Orleans

Way back up in the woods

Among the evergreens
 D
There stand a country cabin

Made of clay and wood
 A
Where lives a young country boy

Named Johnny B. Goode
 E
He never ever learned

To read or write a book so well
 A
But he could play his guitar

Just like a-ringing a bell

 A
Go go, go Johnny go go go!
 D
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Go Johnny go go go!  
 E
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Aah Johnny B. Goode!

 A
He used to carry his guitar

In a gunny sack

Sit beneath the trees

By the railroad track
S
Oh sitting and a-playing

In the shade
 A
Drumming to the rhythm

That the drivers made
 E
People passing by

Used to stop and say
 A
 My oh my

That country boy can play

 A
Go go, go Johnny go go go!
 D
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Go Johnny go go go!  
 E
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Aah Johnny B. Goode!

GUITAR SOLO: A D A D A E A E X2

 A
Well his mama told him

Someday you will be a man

And you will be the leader

Of a big old band
 D
Many people coming

From miles around
 A
To hear you play your music

Till the sun goes down
 E
Maybe some day

Your name will be in light
 A
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight!

 A
Go go, go Johnny go go go!
 D
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Go Johnny go go go!  
 E
Go Johnny go go go!  
 A
Aah Johnny B. Goode!
