8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Dee-ten dat-ten doo-ten, If you hear somebody toot-in' it.
Dee-teen dat-ten doo-ten, That's a musical jag.
When they play they've got a way of puttin' lots o' cute in it,
Dee-ten dat-ten doo-ten, It's the Down Home Rag.
Down Home, They've got rhythm an' how,
Down Home, While they're pushin' the plow,
Down Home, They're all doo-ten it now.
Oh! They're Dee-ten dat-ten doo-ten to the Down Home Rag.
