Deep down in Jamaica, close to Mandeville Back up in the woods, on top of a hill There stood an old hut made of earth and wood There lived a country boy named, Johnny B. Goode He never learned to read and write so well But he could play his guitar like ringin' a bell, yell I said go, go Johnny! Johnny be good tonight! Yeah ah I said go, go Johnny! Johnny B. Goode... He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo Sitting in a tree in the railroad track Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo Old engineer in the train sittin' in the shade Choo-chooooo Strummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo People passing by would stop and say: Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo "Oh my, oh my, oh what a boy can play" I said go, go Johnny! Johnny be good tonight! Said go, go Johnny! Johnny B. Goode... Mama said: "Son, you gotta be a man Go, be a man You got to be the leader of a reggae band" Skengay skengay, skengay People comin' in from miles around Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo To hear you play until the sun goes down Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo Boy, someday your name will be in the lights Dee-oo-doo, dee-oo-doo Sayin' "JOHNNY - JOHNNY B.
