This is probably my favorite Chuck Berry song. Every time I hear it, I can see dad, rapping along with the lyrics. Growing up, I don't think I ever heard this song played anywhere outside our home like some of Berry's other, more famous tunes.
"No Money Down" was released on Chess Records in December 1955 as the A Side of "Down Bound Train." It was also Berry's first UK single, being released there in May 1956.
