Intro 

Deep  
[A] down in Louisiana close to New Orleans 

Way back up in the woods among the evergreens 

There  
[D] stood a log cabin made of earth and wood 

Where  
[A] lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode 

Who  
[E] never ever learned to read or write so well, but he 

could  
[A] play the guitar like a ringin’ a bell. 

Chorus 

[A] Go go, Johnny go go, Goi go Johnny go go 

[D] Go go Johnny go go,  
[A] Go go Johnny go go  
[E7] go! 

Johnny B.  
[A] Goode… 

He used to  
[A] put his guitar in a gunny sack 

and go sit beneath a tree by the railroad track. 

An  
[D] engineers could see him sitting in the shade 

[A] strummin’ to the rhythm that the drivers made 

[E] People passing by… they would stop and say 

Oh  
[A] my but that little country boy can play. 

Chorus 

Instrument verse and intro 

His  
[A] mother told him “someday you will be a man” 

And you will be the leader of a big ole’ band 

[D] Many, many people come from miles around 

to  
[A] hear your music when the sun go down 

[E] Maybe someday your name will be in lights 

Sayin’  
[A] ‘Johnny B. Goode tonight’. 

Chorus
