Subject: Tunes: Ezekiel's Wheel, also Dry Bones
From: Les Tepe Btepe at pcpartner.net

My wife and I are hosting a home bible study of the book of Ezekiel. We are looking for the tunes to the songs:

Dry Bones (Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!")

Ezekiel's Wheel (Ezekiel saw a wheel a-turning,)

Is there a source for a wav or midi file of these songs?

Thank you for your help.

Please email to btepe at pcpartner.net

Can't help you with the tune, but here is a neat version of Ezekiel that is less common than most. Two different groups of my friends perform it regularly.

EZEKIEL

Ezekiel went down in the middle of the field,
saw an angel workin' on a chariot wheel.
He wasn't particular 'bout the chariot wheel,
he wanted to know how the chariot'd feel.

Chorus:
Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop, and let me ride
Swing down sweet chariot, stop, and let me ride,
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord, calm and easy,
I've got a home on the other side.

Ezekiel went down and he got on board,
the chariot started bumpin' on down the road.
He wasn't particular 'bout the bumpy road,
he wanted to lay down his heavy load.

chorus

I've got a father in the promised land,
don't mean to stop until I shake his hand.
I've got a mother that has gone before,
waiting for me at Heaven's door.

chorus

For a 30 second RealAudio clip of a somewhat similar song by Ian and Sylvia, go to Tunes.com then go down to cut 13, Swing Down, Chariot

Click here for a thread with the lyrics of "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel." Click here for a disconnected set of lyrics for "Dry Bones." I have the songs in songbooks and I can type up a simple MIDI tune, if that's what you're looking for - but I'm not good enough to give you any sort of "arrangement." Click on my name to e-mail me if you want me to send that to you.

I thought it was "Ezekial saw a wheel a-whirlin', way in the middle of the air." It was Ezekial's vision which has made some people assert that he saw a space craft.

EZEKIEL SAW THE WHEEL

Ezekiel saw the wheel way up in the middle of the air
Ezekiel saw the wheel way in the middle of the air
And the little wheel run by faith
And the big wheel run by the grace of God
There's a wheel in a wheel,
Way in the middle of the air.

Some people go to church for to sing and shout,
Way in the middle of the air.
Before six months, they're all turned out,
Way in the middle of the air.
Chorus

Never can tell what a hypocrite will do.
Way in the middle of the air.
He'll lie about me and he'll lie about you,
Way in the middle of the air.
Chorus

Don't pray for things that you don't need,
Way in the middle of the air.
The Lord don't like no sin and greed,
Way in the middle of the air.
Chorus

Subject: Were they wheels or discs?

We all have our ideas concerning what Ezekiel refers to as "flying wheels". Also, isn't it strange how at first he called the beings "creatures" and then late switched to "angels". Maybe they're both the same. Whatever the old boy saw, there's more to the story than any of us know. I certainly have MY ideas.
