Coocoo Bird
Traditional - as sung by Clarence Ashley

Gonna build me log cabin
On a mountain so high
So I can see Willie
As he goes on by

Oh, the coocoo is a pretty bird
She warbles as she flies
She never hollers coocoo
ill the 4th of July

I played cards in England
I played cards in Spain
I bet you ten dollars
Beat you next game

Jack a diamonds, Jack a diamonds
I’ve known you from old
Rob my poor pocket
All my silver and my gold
