8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
There's a place in New Orleans that serves fried chicken with turnip greens,
Crawfish bisque that treats you right and Papa Joe plays there ev'ry night,
A little dark haired beauty says "step right in" and you can bet a big dollar she'll be yo' friend,
Ev'ry body there has a toler'ble time down at Papa Joe's,
Oh the food there is so delicious, it melts right in yo' mouth,
And the music you hear is played by the best band in the south.
Papa Joe's got a swinging band you can rock'n'roll to Dixieland
Customers know it's the place to go, Down at Papa Joe's.
Listen to Fred Finn and Don Van Palta play "Papa Joe's" (mp3)
