What ever happened to Johnny B. Goode
He pawned his guitar like I knew he would
Started working for the CIA
Hasn’t been seen to this very day
Just so you know
That’s the way it goes

Let me tell you about long tall Sally
She’s working at a strip club somewhere in the valley
Didn’t have the looks to be a Playboy Bunny
Pays her rent with the lap dance money
Just so you know
That’s the way it goes

I went looking for Peggy Sue
I found her up in Abilene
She’s working as a waitress there
At the Dairy Queen
Sweet Lorraine, let the party carry on
Lucille, get back where you belong
Hello, Mary Lou, goodbye heart
They’re working the night shift at the Super Mart
Just so you know
That’s the way it goes

Maggie left the farm and married Peter Gunn
They had a little boy; he was a fortunate son
Has all the money that he’ll ever need
Won thirty–two million in the lottery
Good golly, miss Molly and sweet Nadine
They quit talking to Maybelline
C.C. Rider came and took her away
They both drive cabs out in East L.A.
Just so you know
That’s the way it goes
