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

Go go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Johnny B. Goode 

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack 
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track 
Oh, the engineerswould see him sitting in the shade 
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made 
People passing by they would stop and say 
Oh my that little country boy could play 

Go go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Go Johnny go 
Go 
Johnny B. Goode 

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 go down 
Maybe someday your name will be in lights 
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight." 

Go go 
Go Johnny go 
Go go go Johnny go 
Go go go Johnny go 
Go go go Johnny go 
Go 
Johnny B. Goode
