[Verse]

     A#
Deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
    A#
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
      D#
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
      A#
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
    F                             D#
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
             A#
But he could play the guitar just like a ringing a bell


[Chorus]

    A#
Go, Go
A#
Go Johnny go, go
A#            D#
Go Johnny go, go
              A#
Go Johnny go, go
              F  D#
Go Johnny go, go
          A#
Johnny B. Goode


[Verse]

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would 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”


[Chorus]

    A#
Go, Go
A#
Go Johnny go, go
A#            D#
Go Johnny go, go
              A#
Go Johnny go, go
              F  D#
Go Johnny go, go
          A#
Johnny B. Goode


[Solo]


[Verse]

His mother told him "Someday you will be a man”, 
And you will be the leader of a big old band.
Many people coming from 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."


[Chorus]

    A#
Go, Go
A#
Go Johnny go, go
A#            D#
Go Johnny go, go
              A#
Go Johnny go, go
              F  D#
Go Johnny go, go
          A#
Johnny B. Goode



I've heard this song in two different keys but and they both sounded great
but i chose to work out this one cause its an easy reach on the fret board
I hope you have fun playing Johnny B Goode and soon i'll 
post up the TABS for this song.
