Star Guitar B. Goode

I had the great privilege of watching today’s races with Chuck Berry. As expected, he had many profound things to say, but what he told me after the Louisiana Champions Day Classic was way too cool to keep to myself.

Deep down Louisiana in old New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a racetrack made of earth and tar
Where lived a country horse named Star Guitar
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could win some races just like a ringing a bell


Go go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Star Guitar is Good


He used to carry his jockey like a gunny sack
Go graze beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the other trainers would see him working in the shade
Running with the rhythm that his four hooves made
People at the races they would stop for fun
Oh my that little country horse could run


Go go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Star Guitar is Good


His mother told him "Someday you will be a star,
And you will be the leader of the race by far.
Many people coming from miles around
To see him win before the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Star Guitar runs tonight."


Go go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Go Star Guitar go
Go
Star Guitar is Good
