8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Oh, once upon a time in Arkansas,  An old man sat in his little cabin door,
And he fiddled at tune a that he liked to hear,  A jolly old tune that he played by ear.
It was raining hard but the fiddler didn't care,  He sawed away at the popular air,
Though his rooftree leaked like a watter fall,  That did -n't seem to bother the man at all.
Oh,  didn't seem to bother the man at all.
