  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmI love this song, It's like the biography of Johnny B Goode in two songs
  • Dave from Northridge, CaSpringsteen recorded a song called "Johnny Bye Bye" and, obviously, credited this song as the inspiration. It is an amazing song: the first lines are the same: "She drew out all her money out of the Southern Trust, And put her little boy aboard a Greyhound Bus." But the rest of the song is about the death of Elvis Presley. If you haven't heard it, give it a try. It can be found as a b-side and on the 4-disc set "Tracks".
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceThe Rolling Stones covered this in 1963.
