8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I am lonesome since I crossed the hill and o'er the moor and valley,
Such a heavy thought my heart do fill since parting with my Sally.
I seek no more the fine and gay, For echoes but remind me,
How so swift the hours did pass away, With the girl I left behind me.
