Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry (born October 18, 1926) is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958), Chuck Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Last night, I had a beautiful dream
Last night, in the wee wee hours, oh yes
Had a beautiful dream
Ain't about my childhood sweetheart
How true and real it seemed 

I had dreamt we was walkin' Hand in hand, home from school
Yeah, I dreamt we was walkin' together
Hand in hand, home from school
Yeah, if it hadn't be for you darling
I'd broke my mother's rule

Yeah, you was only sixteen
So young and yet so fine
Yeah, you was only sixteen
So young, yet so fine
You said when you'd finish school
You'd let me take and make you mine

Oh yeah
Yeah, you had those same pretty eyes
Same sweet little smile
You had those same pretty eyes
Same sweet little smile
I had dreamt about the sweet things
We used to do, when you was a child 

You were my childhood sweetheart
Love you now, and loved you then
You were my childhood sweetheart
I love you now and I loved you then
And when I'll leave you down the twilight
I'll go to sleep and dream again
