Johnny B. Goode (Live in Springfield, MA, September 3, 1980) lyrics

by

Grateful Dead


[Verse 1]
Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There in an old cabin made of earth and wood
There lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
He never learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar like ringing a bell

[Chorus]
Go go, go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go, go Johnny B. Goode

[Verse 2]
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit up in the trees by the railroad track
The engineers seen him sitting in the shade
Strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made
The people passing by would stop and say
"My, my, that little country boy can play!"

[Chorus]
Go go, go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go, go Johnny B. Goode

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
His papa told him "Someday you will be a man
You will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from all 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 tonight"

[Chorus]
Go go, go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go, go Johnny B. Goode

[Instrumental Break]

[Outro]
Go, go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go Johnny go, go; go Johnny go, go
Go, go Johnny B. Goode

Thank you
