Una canzone che parla da sola: il sogno americano di un ragazzo di campagna che suona la chitarra da dio e diventa una star del rock & roll. Johnny B. Goode è un monumento, più che una canzone. Fu composta da Chuck Berry assieme al suo pianista Johnnie Johnson nel 1955 ed incisa nell’album Chuck Berry Is On Top del 1958. Per rendere l’idea della grandezza del pezzo, si consideri che è impossibile tenere il conto delle cover che ne sono state realizzate.

Johnny B Goode Testo Lyrics

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 named Johnny B. Goode,
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like a ringin’ a bell.

(Chorus)
Go Go
Go Johnny Go Go (x4)
Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack,
Oh sit beneath a tree by the railroad track
Oh the engineers would see him sittin in the shade,
Strummin with the rhythm that the drivers made,
Oh n’ people passin’ by they would stop and say
‘Oh my but that little country boy could play’

(Chorus)

His mother told him ‘some day you will be a man,
And you will be the leader of a big ol’ band
Many people comin’ from miles around,
To hear you play your music when the sun go down,
Maybe some day your name will be in lights sayin
‘Johnny B. Goode’ tonight

(Chorus)
