{c:Verso 1}
[C]Deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
[C]Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
[F]There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
[C]Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
[G7]Who never ever learned to read or write so well
[C]But he could play the uke just like a ringing a bell

{c:Verso 2}
[C]He used to carry a ukulele in a gunny sack
[C]Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
[F]Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
[C]Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
[G7]People passing by they would stop and say
[C]Oh my that little country boy could play

{c:Verso 3}
[C]His mother told him "Someday you will be a man,
[C]And you will be the leader of a big old band.
[F]Many people coming from miles around
[C]To hear you play your music when the sun go down
[G7]Maybe someday your name will be in lights
[C]Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight."
