Lyrics

BYE BYE JOHNNY
(Written by Chuck Berry;
performed by hooyoosay)

She drew out all our money at the Southern Trust,
and put our little boy aboard a Greyhound bus.
Leavin' Lousiana for the Golden West,
down came the 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,
goodbye, Johnny B. Goode.

She remember'd makin' money out from gath'rin' crop,
and buyin' Johnny's guitar at the broker's shop.
As long as he could play it by the railroad side,
wouldn't get in trouble, she'd be satisfied.
But never thought there'd ever come a day like this,
when she would have to give her son a goodbye kiss.

Bye, bye, bye, bye,
bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye, bye, Johnny,
goodbye, Johnny B. Goode.

She fin'lly got the letter she was dreamin' 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 them by the railroad track.
And ev'ry time they heard the locomotive roar,
they'd be standin' and awaitin' by the kitchen door.

Bye, bye, bye, bye,
bye, bye, bye, bye.
Bye, bye, Johnny,
goodbye, Johnny B. Goode.
