223. Joshua Fit de Battle of Jericho

Refrain:
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho;
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho,
An’ de walls come tumblin’ down.

1 You may talk about the man of Gideon,
You may talk about the man of Saul;
Dere’s none like the good ole Joshua,
An’ de battle of Jericho. [Refrain]

2 Up to the walls of Jericho,
He marched with spear in hand;
“Go blow dem ram horns,” Joshua cried,
“for the battle am in my hand.” Oh [Refrain]
