Well, she warbles as she flies,

But you never, hear the cuckoo,
/ |G / / / |G / / / |
'til the fourth day of Ju-ly.
Gonna build me a log cabin,
On a mountain so high,
So I can see Willy,
As she goes walking by.
Well I played cards in old England,
And I've gambled over in Spain,
And I'll bet you ten dollars,
That I'll beat you next game.
Jack o' Diamonds, Jack o' Diamonds,
I know you of old,
You rob ny poor pockets,
Of its silver and its gold.
My horses they ain't hungry,
And they won't eat your hay,
I'll drive home just a little further,
Wondering why you treat me this way.
Oh, the cuckoo she's a pretty bird,
Lord, she warbles as she flies,
She'll cause never more trouble,
And she'll tell you no lies.
There's one thing that's been a puzzle,
Since the day that time began,
A man's love for, for his woman,
And her sweet love for her man.
