I know it, know it,
Indeed I know it brother, I know it - HEY!
Dem bones gonna rise again.
The lord he thought he'd make a man.
(all sing DEM BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN! after each line)
So he took a little water and a little sand.
(all - DEM BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN)
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.
Put 'em in a garden fine and fair.
Told 'em to eat what they found there.
Apples, peaches, plums and such.
But of this tree you must not touch.
One day Miss Eve was walking around
Spied that tree all loaded down.
Serpent crawling around that trunk.
At miss Eve, his eye he wunk.
Eve, she just took a little pull.
Then she filled her fig leaf full.
Adam, he just took a little bite.
Said "um um woman that sure am nice."
One day the Lord was walkin' around.
Spied them peels all over the ground.
The Lord cried out in his mighty voice.
That shook the heavens to the joists.
Cried, "Adam, Adam, Where art thou?"
"Here I is Lord, I's comin' now."
"Adam, Adam, did you eat these?"
"No massa Lord, I 'spect it was Eve."
Then the Lord rose up in his might wrath,
Said, "Ya'll just beat it down the path."
Put an angel at the door.
Said, "Ya'll don't come 'round here no more."
Eve took the needle, Adam took the plow.
That's why we're all working now.
To this tale there ain't no more.
Eve ate the Apple, and Adam got the core.
