Jerry Lee Louis Jhonny Be Good Lyrics

deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back 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 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
Sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Engineers used to see him sitting in the shade
strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my, but that lttle country boy can play


Mama told him someday you would be a man
You would be the leader of a big old band
Many people will be coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun goes down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode is playing tonight
