Georgia Satellites lyrics : "Let It Rock (Bye Bye Johnny)"

(Chuck Berry)

Well in the heat of day down in Mobile, Alabama

I'm workin' on the railroad with a steel drivin' hammer
I gotta get some money buy some brand new shoes
Gotta find somebody take away my blues

Well she don't love me when I'm singin in the sun
Payday's comin when the work is all done


Well now late here in the evening when the sun is sinkin' low
All day I've been waitin' for that whistle to blow
Sitting in a teepee built right on here on the tracks

Rolling them bones until the foreman comes back
Pick up your belongings ,scatter about
Weve got an off shedule train rollin' three miles out


Well now, everybody's scrambling and a jumpin' about
Picking up their money takin' the teepee out

Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane
Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
Engineer blows the whistle loud and long

Can't stop the train, you gotta let it roll on

Let it roll, let it rock


"bye bye johnny"
Well now she drew out all of the money of southern trust

And put her little Johnny on a greybound bus
Leavin' Louisiana for the golden west
Drowned in the tears from her happiness

Her own little son named Johnny B. Goode
Gonna make some motion pictures out in hollywood


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


Well she remembers taking money after gathering crops
And buying Johnny's guitar at the broker's shop

As long as he would play it by the railroad site
He wouldn't get in trouble she was satisfied
Well she never knew there would come a day like this

When she would have to give Johnny a goodbye kiss

I said bye, bye, bye, bye

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


Well now she finally got the letter she'd been dreaming of
When Johnny wrote and told her he had done fell in love
As soon as he was married he wouldd bring her back

And build a mansion for her by the railroad track
And every time you heard that locomotive roar
She'd be standing there waiting at the kitchen door


I'm singin' bye, bye, bye, bye
I said bye, bye, bye, bye

Bye bye Johnny, goodbye Johnny B. Goode
