8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Dooley was a good ole man, He lived below the mill,
Dooley had two daughters and a forty-gallon still.
One gal watched the boiler, The other watched the spout,
And mama corked the bottles when old Dooley fetched them out.
The revenuers came for him, A-sippin' though the woods,
Dooley kept behind them all and never lost his goods.
Dooley was a trader, When into town he'd come,
Sugar by the bushel and molasses by the ton.
Dooley slippin' up the holler, Dooley try'in to make a dollar,
Dooley give me a swaller and I'll pay you back someday.
