8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
There Is A Tavern In The Town, in the town.
And there my true love sits him down, sits him down.
And drinks his wine 'mid laughter gay and free,
But never, never thinks of me.
Fare the well for I must leave thee, do not let the parting grieve thee,
And remember that the best of friends must part, must part.
Adieu, adieu kind friends adieu, adieu, adieu.
I can no longer stay with you, stay with you.
And I will hang my harp on a weeping willow tree,
And may the world go well with thee.
