Strange things have happened
That never before
My baby told me
I would have to go

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

Feel bad this mornin'
Ain't got no home
No use a-worryin'
'Cause the world 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 did leave ya, 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 lovin'
And treat you mine
But it seems that now, right
Got no love in 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 be kind
Pray to the good Lord, to
Get her off 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

Then, when you've 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, babe because
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.
