Am                                              Em            Am
Oh the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird, and she warbles, as she flies
                                           Em         Am
And she never, holler cuckoo, until the 4th day, of July
                                                    Em           Am
Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds, you're the meanest, heart I know
                                       Em             Am
Well you rob my, poor pockets, of the silver, and of gold
                                           Em               Am
I'm going up, up on a mountain, I'm gonna build me, a whiskey still
                                       Em            Am
And I'll sell you, one bottle, for a twenty, dollar-bill
                                           Em             Am
I'm going up, up on a mountain, I'm gonna stand, lookin' down
                                        Em                 Am
So I can see my, pretty baby, whenever she, comes walking round
                                              Em              Am
Oh the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird, and she warbles, as she flies
                                        Em            Am
And she never, holler cuckoo, until the 4th day, of July

                                          Em              Am
Well I'll eat, when I'm hungry, and I'll drink, when I'm dry
                                             Em            Am
And if some woman, don't shoot me, then I'll live, a long time
                                               Em            Am
Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds, well I've known you, of old
                                         Em             Am
Well you rob my, poor pockets, and you nearly, stole my soul
                                               Em            Am
Oh the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird, and she warbles, as she flies
                                           Em             Am
Well she brings us, glad tidings, and she never, tells no lies
                          Em          Am
Ohh-hoo-hoo, Mm-hmm-hmm, Mm-hmm, Mm-hmm-hmm
                          Em      Am
Mm-hmm-hmm, Mm-hmm-hmm, Mm-hmm, Mm-hmm
