about

A traditional tune, this is one of the few tunes I play in a style like the source I hear - the wonderful Roscoe Holcomb. I didn't say I play like Roscoe Holcomb, because nobody else can.

lyrics

CooCoo
Traditional

Oh the CooCoo, she’s a pretty bird
And she warbles as she flies
She never hollers coocoo
Till the Fourth Day of July

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

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

Oh the CooCoo, she’s a pretty bird
Don’t I wish she was mine
She’d never be wanting
She’d always be kind.
Oh the CooCoo, she’s a pretty bird
Don’t I wish she was mine
She’d never drink water
She’d always drink wine
