8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I stop worryin' when I start hurryin away,
From all my daily cares, and lonesomeness.
Twilites hour finds me in a bower, where the skies are blue.
And here's a birds's eye view, of happiness:
High up on a hill-top,  Beautiful to see,
There's a cozy cottage,  Standing peacefully.
Skies are never cloudy,  When the day is done,
Stars are twinkling "Howdy",  To a setting sun.
Just picture little Jack and Jill,  Running down the hill to meet me.
And there's my little la- dy fair,  Waiting for her share of joy.
Hand in hand together,  Happy as can be,
High up on a hill-top;  That's heaven to me.
