8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song has 4 slow beats per cell (listen to the bass beats). Playing 8 beats per cell sounds OK as well.

I've met some folks who say that I'm a dream - er,  And I've no doubt there's truth in what they say.
But sure a bod - y's bound to be a dream - er,  When all the things he loves are far a - way.
And pre - cious things are dreams un - to an ex - ile,  They take him o'er the land a - cross the sea,
E - spe - ci'lly when it hap - pens he's an ex - ile,  From that dear love - ly Isle Of In - nis - free.
And when the moon - light peeps a - cross the roof - tops,  Of this great cit - y, won - drous tho it be.
I scarce - ly feel it's won - der or it's laugh - ter,  I'm once a - gain back home in In - nis - free.
