8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Play verse, chorus, chorus, then repeat.
Banjo Land, land of harmony, Banjo Land, land of melody,
When the cotton picking's o'er, Music fills the air.
Banjo Land, home of funny tunes, Banjo Land, land of sunny tunes,
When the moon is in the sky, Banjos ev'ry where.
Down In Banjo Land, down In Banjo Land, Ev'ry body's got a banjo in his hand.
Melodies galore, 'Round the cabin door,
Southern folks pickin' banjo strokes, Music something grand.
Mammy, she's a hummin', Boys are all a strummin', In the ev'ning by the moonlight,
In Banjo Land.
