The monster mash (it's called the monster mash)

Johnny B. Goode

<Chuck Berry>

E
A
E
A
Well deep down in 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
E
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
A
But he could play the guitar just like ringin' a bell
A
Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go, Johnny go
D
D
Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go, go Johnny go
E
D
A
E
Go, go, Johnny B. Goode
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track The engineers would see him sitting in the shade Strummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made When people passed him by they would stop and say Oh my but that little country boy could play
A
D

E
Well his mother told him someday you will be a man You will be the leader of a big ol' band Many people coming from miles around Will hear you play your music when the sun go down Maybe someday your name will be in lights Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight
