Down in de valley de sperrit spoke:|
'Zekul, go prophesy.
An 'Zekul saw de valley full o' dead man's bones
An' every bone was dry.
2. Sperrit told 'Zekul call de four winds forth|
An' breathe on de bones all slain.
Behold be beard a noise, every bone to his bone
Come together an' lived again.
3. De graves all opened an' de bones took breath,
4. Some of dem bones is my mother's bones,|
Come together for to rise an' shine.
Some o' dem bones is my father's bones,
An' some o' dem bones is mine.
5. Some o' dem bones gwinea make me laugh,
