Johny B Good  Chuck Berry

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

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

he used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
and sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
living in the city sitting in the shade
strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made

his mother told him someday you will be a man
and you will be the leader of a big old band
many people coming from miles around
to hear you play your music when the sun goes down
maybe some day your name will be in lights
saying johnny b good tonight
