Took a little water, took a little sand
Dem bones goona rise again

I know it, know it,
Indeed I know it -
Brother, I know it, Whee!
Dem bones gonna rise again.

Dem bones gonna rise again
Saw him mighty lonely there
Dem bones gonna rise again

Dem bones gonna rise again
Made Miss Eve to be his bride.
Dem bones gonna rise again.

Dem bones gonna rise again
Saw them mighty happy there.
Dem bones gonna rise again

5. Apples, peaches, pears and such
Dem bones gonna rise again
But one fruit you must not touch.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Dem bones gonna rise again
At Miss Eve his eye he wunk.

Dem bones gonna rise again
Take a bite, the Lord won't mind.

Eve got the apple, Adam got the core.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Don't leave your cores for the Lord to see.
Dem bones gonna rise again
