8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I write these lines to tell you that I'm sorry I left home,
Because I'm all alone,  why did you let me roam?
Some one put the jinx on me,  I'm up against it strong,
I'm out of work and so I wrote a song.
The first verse dear is very sweet,  because it speaks of you.
I'm sending you the chorus,  read it thru'.
My little girl you know I love you,
And I long for you each day.
My little girl,  I'm dreaming of you,
Tho' you're many miles away.
I see the lane,  down in wildwood,
Where you promised to be true.
My little girl,  I know you're waiting,
And I'm coming back to you.
