about

Kathryn learned this popular American traditional song many years ago and has sung it all over the world. The chorus is great for people to sing along with, no matter what language they speak because it is a call and response. When Kathryn started playing it with The Lasses, they arranged their harmony parts to highlight the call and response, really bringing out the American roots of the song.

lyrics

Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird, and she warbles as she flies
But she never says Cuckoo till the 4th day of July

I'm gonna build me a log cabin on the mountain so high
So I can see my darling as he goes passing by

I've played cards in England, and I've played cards in Spain
And I beat you all over this wide world and I will beat you once again.

Jack of diamonds, jack of diamond I've known you of old
you have robbed my poor pocket of their silver and their gold
