8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I want to drink my coffee from an old tin can,
While the moon comes shinin' high.
I want to hear the call of a whippoorwill,
I want to hear a coyote cry.
I want to feel that saddle horse between my knees,
Ridin' him out on the range,
Just to kick him in the side, make him show his step and pride,
Back On Those Texas Plains.
