8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
There's a place in New Or -leans that serves fried chick -en with tur -nip greens,
Craw -fish bisque that treats you right and Pa -pa Joe plays there ev -'ry night,
A lit -tle dark haired beau -ty says "step right in" and you can bet a big dol -lar she'll be yo' friend,
Ev -'ry bod -y there has a tol -er -'ble time down at Pa -pa Joe's,
Oh the food there is so de -li -cious, it melts right in yo' mouth,
And the mu -sic you hear is played by the best band in the south.
Pa -pa Joe's got a swing -ing band you can rock -'n' -roll to Dix -ie -land
Cus -tom -ers know it's the place to go, Down at Pa -pa Joe's.
