12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Note:  This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
I hear the cot-ton-woods whis-p'rin a-bove:
Tam-my! Tam-my!  Tam-my's my love!
The ole hoot-ie owl hoot-ie-hoo's to the dove:
Tam-my!  Tam-my!  Tam-my's my love!
Does my dar-ling feel, what I feel, when she comes near?
My heart beats so joy-ful-ly, you'd think that she could hear!
Wish I knew if she new what I'm dream-ing of!
Tam-my! Tam-my! Tam-my's my love!
