Sweet Little Sixteen
She's got the grown-up blues
Tight dresses and lipstick
She's sportin' high-heel shoes
Oh but tomorrow morning
She'll have to change her trend
And be sweet sixteen
And back in class again
The sight of her in a blue gingham dress could break your heart, but the way she looked out of the dress could make the same heart explode.

I just had to post this salute to (a.o.) Chuck's cousin, Marvin Berry.
And to Chuck, and to Eddie Van Halen.

Guess I'll be staying up late this night... rockin' & rollin'.

Thank you, Chuck Berry! 8)

he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Sad.
Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he is warm for life.

Yes indeed, but you omitted my favorite "No particular place to go".

Me too!  :)

Jerry also did a nice version of it with his 90's bands.  I think this is the only officially released version (great show BTW; I was there  8)):

Barrack Obama on Chuck Berry
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.
