Johnny Bye Bye - As performed by Bruce Springsteen
 (Chuck Berry/Bruce Springsteen)

         E                               A        E
Well she drew out all her money from the Southern Trust
                              B         E
And put her little boy on the Greyhound Bus
                       A                 E
Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand
                             B         E
With a one way ticket to the Promised Land
                     A               E
Hey little girl with the red dress on
                              B        E
There's party tonight down in Memphis town
                                A          E
I'll be going down there if you need a ride
                          B                E  | E | A E | E | B E
The man on the radio says Elvis Presley's died

                        A                E
We drove to Memphis the sky was hard and black
                         B            E
Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac
                                        A              E
They drawed out all his money and they laid him in the back
                                    B               E
A woman cried from the roadside "Oh he's gone, he's gone"
                           A           E
They found him slumped up against the drain
                            B                   E
With a whole lotta trouble running through his veins

                 A         E
Bye bye Johnny, Johnny bye bye
                             B              E
You didn't have to die, you didn't have to die
