  • Well she drew out all her money out from southern trust
    And put a little boy aboard a greyhound bus
    Leaving Louisiana for the golden west
    Down came her tears from her happiness
    Her own little son named Johnny B Goode
    Was gonna make some motion pictures out in Hollywood

    Bye bye bye bye
    Bye bye bye bye
    Bye bye Johnny bye bye Johnny B Goode

    Well she remember taking money out from gathering crops
    And buying Johnny's guitar at a broker shop
    As long as he could play it by the railroad side
    And wouldn't get in trouble she'd be satisfied
    Never thought there'd ever come a day like this
    When she would gladly give her son a goodbye kiss

    Bye bye bye bye
    Bye bye bye bye
    Bye bye Johnny bye bye Johnny B Goode

    Well she finally got the letter she was dreaming of
    Johnny wrote and told her he had fell in love
    As soon as he was married he would bring her back
    And build a mansion for her by the railroad tracks
    And every time they heard the locomotive roar
    They'd be a standing, waving in the kitchen door

    Howling bye bye bye bye
    Now bye bye bye bye
    Bye bye Johnny bye bye Johnny B Goode
