96. Joshua Fit de Battle of Jericho

Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho;
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
an’ de walls come tumblin’ down.
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho;
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
an’ de walls come tumblin’ down.

You may talk about the man of Gideon,
You may talk about the man of Saul,
Dere’s none like good ole Joshua,
an’ de battle of Jericho.
Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in han';
“Go blow dem ram horns,” Joshua cried,
“for de battle am in my hand.”

Dat mo'nin'
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho;
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
an’ de walls come tumblin’ down.
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho;
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
an’ de walls come tumblin’ down.
