G - - -           (repeat)
8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Wake up, wake up, Darlin' Corey,
What makes you sleep so sound?
The revenue officers a'coming,
For to tear your still-house down.

When first I saw Darlin' Corey,
She stood in front of the door.
In her hand was a sizeable bottle,
And I guessed what it was for.
Last time I seen Darlin' Corey,
On the banks of the deep blue sea,
With a forty-four buckled around her,
And a banjo on her knee.
