Bye Bye Johnny Chords

   
BYE BYE JOHNNY - CHUCK BERRY

A combination of Chuck Berry/Rolling Stones/Status Quo versions


Original key = C


C
She drew out all her money at the Southern Trust

And put her little boy upon a Greyhound bus
   F
Leaving Louisiana for the golden west
C
Down came the tears from her happiness
    G
Her own little son named Johnny B Goode
             C
Was going to make some motion pictures out in Holliwood


C                F           C
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye
G               F                C
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B Goode


C
She remembered taking money earnt from gathering crop
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/chuck_berry/bye_bye_johnny_crd.html ]
And buying Johnny's guitar at a broker's shop
   F
As long as he would play it by the railroad side
   C
He wouldn't get in trouble, he was satisfied
    G
But never thought there'd ever come a day like this
               C
When she would have to give her son a goodbye kiss


C                F           C
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye
G               F                C
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B Goode


[GUITAR SOLO]

C
She finally got the letter she'd been dreaming of

Johnny wrote and told her he had fell in love
   F
As soon as he was married he would bring her back
    C
And build a mansion for them by the railroad track
   G
So every time they heard the locomotive roar
          C
They'd be standing and waving in the kitchen door


C                F           C
Bye bye bye bye, Bye bye bye bye
G               F                C
Bye-bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B Goode


Repeat ad lib to fade
