Verse: Bb Deep down in Louisana close to New Orleans Way back up in the woods among the evergreens Eb There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood Bb Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode F Who never ever learned to read or write so well Bb But he could play the guitar just a like ringin' a bell. Chorus: Go! Go! go, Johnny, go, go! Go! Johnny, go, go! Go! Johnny, go, go! Go! Johnny, go, go! Johnny B. Goode Verse: Bb He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track Eb Old engineers would see him sittin' in the shade Bb Strummin' with the rythm that the drivers made F The people passin' by they would stop and say: Bb "Oh my, but that little country boy could play."
