Glad you got my message. Those notes look correct. Unfortunately, I don't have a musical keyboard handy.

Joe Offer, this tune always sounded to be in a minor key. If you try the notes above, it will likely sound odd, but it looks correct. The first "E" is the down beat.....the preceeding A and C end-off the previous measure (It's been so long since studying music terminology).

Possibly, we learned different variations on the tune. You know those ad-libbing elementary music teachers (!).
