Subject: RE: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Felipa, it's a folk song, recorded by many artists, using many different titles and spellings and lyrics. I learned the song from David Holt's album, Reel And Rock, and his spelling was The Coo Coo. Clarence Ashley called it Coo Coo Bird. It was called "The Coo Coo Bird" on Doc Watson, The Vanguard Years.
