THE CUCKOO (Trad)

Gonna build me a log cabin
On the mountain so high
So that I can see Willie
As he goes ridin' by

Chorus 
	Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird
	She warbles as she flies 
	and she never hollers cuckoo
	'Till the forth day of July.
 
I've played cards in England
and I've played cards in Spain
I bet you ten dollars
I can beat you next game

Chorus

Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds
I know you of old
You robbed my poor pockets
Of my silver and gold

Chorus

She drinks those pure waters
just to keep her voice clear
and she'll not holler cuckoo
'Till the same time next year

Chorus
