8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of Bb.
Voices hum, crooning over Moonlight Bay,
Banjos strum, tuning while the moon beams play.
All alone unknown they find me, Memories like these remind me,
Of the girl I left behind me, Down on Moonlight Bay.
We were sailing along, On Moonlight Bay,
We could hear the voices ringing, They seemed to say,
"You have stolen my heart, Now don't go 'way!"
As we sang Love's Old Sweet Song, On Moonlight Bay.
