Årets Polarpris går till Chucken – det var på tiden!

Deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like a ringing a 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 the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play

Go go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Johnny B. Goode

His mother told him ”Someday you will be a man,
And you will be the leader of a big old band.
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight.”

Go go
Go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go
Johnny B. Goode

  1. Såg Chucken på Stene Gård i Järvsö av alla ställen för några år sedan. Det var heavy kan jag tala om. Snudd på ofattbart! .-P

  2. Tung du är Goten som hyllar Berry – med all rätt.

    Peter Tosh hann göra en svängig version av Johnny innan han rånmördades på våldets Jamaica 1987. CIA pumpade in vapen för att destabilisera Jamaica på sent 70-tal, anledningen var bl.a. att socialisten Manley gjort klart att han skulle nationalisera bauxitgruvorna på Jamaica i valrörelsen 1978 vid eventuell valvinst.

    Hursom, Berry och Tosh är hjältar för musiken och svarta människor:
