8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
If I had listened to what Mama said,
I would not have been here today,
Wishing for things I'll never have,
And weeping my sweet life away.
Oh, if you see that girl of mine,
There's something you must tell her,
She need not be foolin' no time away,
To court some other feller.
If I was on some foggy mountain top,
I'd sail 'way out to the West.
I'd sail all around this ole wide world,
To the one I love the best.
