Gonna build me log cabin On a mountain so high So I can see Willie As he goes passing by Oh, the coo-coo, she’s a pretty bird She wobbles as she flies She never says coo-coo Till the fourth day July I’ve played cards in England I’ve played cards in Spain I’ll bet you ten dollars I beat you next game Jack-a-Diamonds, Jack-a-Diamonds I’ve known you from old You’ve robbed my poor pocket Of my silver and my gold My horses ain’t hungry They won’t eat your hay I’ll drive on a little further I’ll feed ‘em on my way
