This song is on Buddy Holly's 'Reminiscing' Album released in 1963 and it hit the top 5 in the UK. Chuck Berry wrote & recorded BHM in 1956 and hit the charts with it in 1957. That same year Buddy Holly did a 'cover' version of BHM. I've seen Chuck Berry play this in Key of Eb...Waylon Jennings did it Key of D...Buddy Holly in E. And everybody has a different intro.. so pick what you like. KK. #1. E Arrested on charges of unemployment he was sitting in the witness stand. A The judge's wife called up the District Attorney B E said free that brown eyed man.. E D E You want your job you better free that brown eyed man. #2.
