Green Day Johnny Be Good Lyrics

Last updated: 10/04/2006 11:00:00 AM

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

Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go
Go Johnny Go
GO
go johnny go
go
go johnny go
go
Johny be good

He use to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
And sit beneath the trees by the railroad track.
Oh, the engineers used to see him sitting in the shade,
Strumin with the rhythm that the drivers made.
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play

Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go
go johnny go
go
go johnny go
go
go johnny go
go
Johny be good

His mama told him someday he would be a man,
And you would 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.

go go
go johnny go
go go
go johnny
go go
go johnny go
go go
go johnny go
go
johnny be good
