Johnny B Goode (Chuck Berry cover)
original by: Chuck Berry

version 3:
from The NOLA Treblemakers: Back To One! (December 6th 2023) (2:40)
Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among them 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 that guitar just like a-ringin 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
Go sit beneath them trees by the railroad tracks
Engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made
The people passing by they would stop and say
"Oh my but that little country boy can play"
Go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Whoo, Johnny B. Goode

His momma told him "someday you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from the miles around
To hear you play that music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will 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
Whoo, Johnny B. Goode

from The Monochromes: 31 Tunes (October 25th 2018) (2:31)
Deep down in 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 named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play that guitar just like a-ringin 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
Go sit beneath the trees by the railroad tracks

The people passing by they would stop and say
"Oh my but that little country boy can play"
Go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go
Whoo, Johnny B. Goode

Well his momma told him "someday you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from the miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will 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
Whoo, Johnny B. Goode
