8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Come on down South, 'way,  'way down South,
Where the Sun shines ev'ry day,
Soft skies of blue,  smile down on you,
And all the birds are singing clear and gay.
Come on along,  join in the song,
Jump on board it won't be long,
We're on our way,  hip, hip, hooray,
We're going down South today.
