"Johnny B Goode"


[Verse 1:]
Deep down in Jamaica close to Mandeville
Back up in the woods on top of a hill
There stood an old hut made of earth and wood
There lived a country boy named Johnny B Goode
He never learned to read and write so well
But he could play his guitar like ringing a bell yell

[Chorus:]
I said go! go Johnny!
Johnny B goode tonight! yeeah
I said go! go Johnny! Johnny B Goode

[Verse 2:]
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Sit beneath a tree in the railroad track
Old engineer in the train sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by would stop and say
Oh my! oh my! all what the boy can play

[Chorus:]
I said go! go Johnny!
Johnny B Goode tonight! yeeeah
Said go! go Johnny! Johnny B Goode

[Verse 3:]
Mama said son you gotta be a man(go be a man)
You got to be the leader of a reggae band(reggae reggae reggae)
People coming in from miles around
To hear you play until the sun goes down
Boy someday your name will be in the light
Saying johnny! johnny! B goode tonight

[Outro:]
I said go! go Johnny!
Johnny B Goode tonight! yeeeah
Said go! go Johnny!
Johnny you better be good
I said go! go Johnny!
Johnny B goode tonight!
Go! go Johnny! Johnny B Goode
I said go go go go
Johnny B Goode tonight!
