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 name of Johnny B. Goode
He 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
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go go
Johnny be good

He use to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
And sit beneath the trees by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers used to 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
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go go
Johnny be good

His mama told him someday he would be a man
And he would be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear him play his music 'til the sun go down
Maybe someday his name would 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 go go Johnny go
Johnny be good
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Johnny be good
