8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame,
You charm the husk right off of the corn Mame,
You've got the banjoes strummin' and plunkin' out a tune to beat the band,
The whole plantation's hummin' since you brought Dixie back to Dixieland.
You make the cotton easy to pick, Mame,
You give my old mint julep a kick Mame,
You make the old magnolia tree blossom at the mention of your name,
You've made us feel alive again, You've given us the drive again,
To make the South revive again Mame.
