0 - In The Singing Family of the Cumberlands, Jean Ritchie wrote: " When we all got started on 'The Cuckoo She's A Pretty Bird,' we sang back all the happy days and ways of our growing up. Remembrances by the score swept over my mind. Funny happenings, happy days, and sad days, and I could tell by the sound of the other voices that they were remembering too."
