Oh, once up - on a time in Ar - kan - sas,  An old man sat in his lit - tle cab - in door,
And he fid - dled at tune a that he liked to hear,  A jol - ly old tune that he played by ear.
It was rain - ing hard but the fid - dler did - n't care,  He sawed a - way at the pop - u - lar air,
Though his roof - tree leaked like a wat - ter fall,  That did -n't seem to both - er the man at all.
 
Ending:
Oh,  did - n't seem to both - er the man at all.
