Written and recorded by Richie Valens, and based on an old Mexican folk song.   The backing is a simple three chord progression C to F to G . (1  1V  V )  What makes the song memorable and a joy to play is the rhythm and infectious energy that can be created .  This song sounds great on a ukulele, or, as the Mexicans say  Ándaleándale   Un Ukelele !

“ukelele” is the Spanish spelling.
