Thread Name: The Cuckoo Bird question
Subject: The Cuckoo Bird question
I have heard that the Song The Cuckoo Bird is an old song from England. I first heard Dock Boggs do it and later Doc Watson. Does anyone know if that is correct?

"Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird
Lord she warbles when she flies"
