JOHN DENVER lyrics - John Denver

Johnny B. Goode

Original and similar lyrics
(Berry) Way down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, way back in the woods among the evergreens, there stood a log cabin made or earth and wood, where lived a country boy name of Johnny B. Goode. He never ever learned to read or write so well, but he could play a guitar just like a ringing bell. Go go go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Goode. He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack, go sit beneath a tree by the railroad track. The engineers would see him sitting in the shade strumming to the rhythm that the drivers made. The people passing by they would stop and say, oh my, but that little country boy can play. Go go go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Goode. Well, his momma told him, 'Some day you will be a man. You will be the leader of a big old band. Many people coming from miles around just to hear you play your music till the sun goes down. Maybe someday your name'll be in lights, saying, 'Johnny B. Goode tonight.' Go go go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Goode. Go go go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Goode.

Jonathan's Halo

ARIEL PINK "Lover Boy"
Jonathan's tired and ready for sleep At eight o' clock in the afternoon Cleaning up the mess that he made Every day it's 4 AM all week, each day But no, no, no, no Don't ask, 'cause I don't know The basic rules to suit The new tattoo on his shoulder Johnny comes and Johnny goes Please believe me, ow Johnny goes away but then Johnny's a cat Eating from the same place he riddles his scat Sour green incense will burn out tonight A secret, a whisper, a candle will light No, no, no, no Don't ask, 'cause I don't know The difference over, under, where Oh, there Johnny goes and Johnny goes... Heaven take me now! Johnny invites all the girls to stay Twenty-five dollars each night they pay But Johnny cuts corners and then cuts the cheese Chasing the tail of some brat that's in heat But no, no, no, no Don't ask, 'cause I don't know Why every day, every night The wicked boy sings All those wicked songs Johnny goes and Johnny comes back Please, you gotta believe me Drugs suck

Johnny Wants To Be A Star

JERRY REED "Better Things In Life"
Now every day you'd see him out on the front porch with a guitar across his lap He'd be a sittin' there a diggin' that transistor radio pickin' all them hit songs out While the other kids would sit around and whittle on sticks Little Johnny got his guitar down and he'd pick Cause that's the way that Johnny used to get his kicks tryin' to figure out some new hot licks Little Johnny wants to be a star little Johnny wants to be a star All he wants to do is sing a little song and play music on a fine guitar Ya hear him goin' mmhhmm hmm hmm mmhhmm hmm hmm Leap in there Johnny Now every time a show would come to town you'd find Johnny on a front row seat He'd be a sittin' there a starin' all misty eyed never missin' one single beat Now when the show was over he would go straight home Get his guitar down and he would play it till dawn A dreamin' of a time when he'd be grown and someday he'd have a show of his own Little Johnny wants to be a star... One day he picked up his songs and his guitar he kissed his little mama goodbye

Johnny Will

Pat Boone
I gotta get some money and get it right away Because my baby she gave me the word today She's tired of sittin' home each night, she says she has her fill And if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will I checked and found they're sellin' tickets at five bucks each And all that kinda money ain't within my reach But if I wanna be the guy who is her only thrill I better take her to the dance next week or Johnny will Oh, that Johnny, that no-good Johnny He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a Sends her candy, sends her flowers And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said 'no' Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough My future happiness depends on one ten-dollar bill 'cause if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will, Johnny will Oh, that Johnny, that no-good Johnny He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a Sends her candy, sends her flowers And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said 'no' Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough My future happiness depends on one ten-dollar bill 'cause if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will, Johnny will Oh that Johnny Johnny will
