By Jeremy Hammond:

I was just playing around and worked out a fun little arrangement for this traditional song that everyone will recognize.

** EDITOR’S NOTE: **

I couldn’t resist picking this as our Guest Sessions featured video of the week.  It’s a fun little song, and a fun little performance by one of our favorite contributors to the site.

We may know this popularly as the “Mexican Hat Dance,” but it is more formally known as “Jarabe tapatio.”  It was first compiled in Guadalajaran music professor Jesus Gonzalez Rubio as a medley of Mexican folk music.  It has since been honored by many as the national dance of Mexico.

This is your Guest Session electric cover song instrumental video.  We hope you’ll enjoy it and hurry back next week for another great contribution!

“World Gone Wrong”
Traditional

D
Strange things have happened, like never before;
My baby told me I would have to go.
D            G
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
G            A7
I can’t be good, baby,
Dmaj7                    A7                      D
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

Feel bad this morning, ain’t got no home.
No use in worrying, ’cause the world’s gone wrong.
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

I told you, baby, right to your head,
If I didn’t leave you I would have to kill you dead.
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

I tried to be loving and treat you kind,
But it seems like you never right; you got no loyal mind.
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

If you have a woman and she don’t treat you kind,
Praise the Good Lord to get her out of your mind.
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

Said, when you been good now, can’t do no more,
Just tell her kindly, “There is the front door.”
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.

Pack up my suitcase, give me my hat,
No use to ask me, baby, ’cause I’ll never be back.
I can’t be good no more, once like I did before.
I can’t be good, baby,
Honey because the world’s gone wrong.
