DESE BONEZ R GWINE RIZ AGIN
(Traditional, Public Domain. Additional lyrics by RKB, 1/07)
1.) Well, the Lord he thought he'd make a man.
Made him out of clay with a little bit of sand.
Then he thought he'd make a woman too.
He knew exactly just what to do.
Took a rib from Adam's side,
And there he fashioned him a pretty bride.
CHORUS - Lord, n' I know it, didn't I know it? Deze bonz r gwine riz agin.
Lord, n' I know it, didn't I know it? Deze bonz r gwine riz agin.
2.) Time went by and the garden was blessed, (db…)
But then there came up a little test. (db…)
Do you love me enough to obey? (db…)
See that apple tree, stay away. (db…)
CHORUS, 2X - (as above.) then modulate.
3.) But a liar claimed it would make 'em wise. (db…)
So they helped themselves to the forbidden prize. (db…)
Then they saw they were completely bare, (db…)
And the Lord he chased 'em on outta there. (db…)
CHORUS - (as above.) Then Instrumental.
4.) But the Lord he still loved Adam & Eve. (shhhh)
Gave 'em a promise and said believe.
Messiah will crush that serpent's face.
Bleed and take your sins away.
Rise on up then from the grave, (db…)
Return and bring you home again. (db…)
CHORUS - (as above.)
5.) Of this song there ain't no more. (db…)
But the Lord is knockin' on the door. (db…)
CHORUS,3X - Two soft, one loud. Last line of loud chorus: hold "rise….again."
