[Verse 1]
    Bb
Way down in Louisiana down 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 a guitar just like he's ringin' a bell


[Chorus]
Bb     
Go Go

Johnny B. Goode


[Verse 2]
            Bb
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack    
And sit beneath the trees by the railroad track
    Eb
The engineers would see him sittin' in the shade
Bb
Strummin' to the rhythm that the driver made
      F
When people passed him by they would stop and say
   Bb
Oh my that little country boy sure can play


[Chorus]

Go Go

Well his mama told him one day you will be a man
You will be the leader of a big old band

To hear you play your music when the sun go down
 F
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
