Dem Bones (Gonna Rise Again)

 

Chorus:
I know it brother brother,
Indeed I know it brother, I know it HEY!
Dem bones gonna rise again

The lord he thought he'd make a man.
DEM BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN!
So he made Adam cordin' to a plan.
DEM BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN!

Repeat chorus:

Thought he'd make a woman too.
The Lord didn't know just what to do.
Took a rib from Adam's side.
For to make Miss Eve, his bride.

Repeat chorus

Put 'em in a garden wide and fair.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Told 'em to eat what they found there.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Peaches, pears, plums and such.
Dem bones gonna rise again
But the apple tree you better not touch.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

One day Miss Eve was walking around
Dem bones gonna rise again
.Spied that tree all loaded down.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Serpent crawling around that trunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again
At miss Eve, his eye he wunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Eve, she just took a little pull.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Then she filled her fig leaf full.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Adam, he just took a little bite.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said um'um woman that sure am nice.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

One day the Lord was walking around.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Spied them peels all over the ground.
Dem bones gonna rise again

The Lord cried out in his mighty voice.
Dem bones gonna rise again
That shook the heavens to the joists.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Cried, Adam, Adam, Where art though?
Dem bones gonna rise again
Here I is Lord, I's comin' now.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Adam, Adam, did you eat these?
Dem bones gonna rise again
No massa Lord, I 'spect it was Eve.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Then the Lord rose up in his might wrath,
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll just beat it down the path.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Put an angel at the door.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll don't come 'round here no more.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Eve took the needle, Adam took the plow.

That's why we're all working now.
Dem bones gonna rise again
