Joe, Dese Bones is different from Dem Bones. *BG*

The tunes not the same

The chorus of Dese Bones that I sing, is slightly different than that in the DT, with some minor differences in the verses

Chorus
I knowed it knowed it Yesee
I knowed it Sister
I knowed it, knowed it
Dese bones gonna rise again

The verses are spoken with only "dese bones gonna rise again" and the chorus sung.

Actually now that I've listened more closely, the tune that I am familiar with is quite a bit different than either in the DT. Wouldn't call it exactly jazzy but more "Hallelujah!Shake it loose brother!"

The lord He thought He'd make a man
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
So he took a little water and he took a little sand
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it, brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

Now Adam he was terribly blue
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
He didn't know exactly what to do
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it, brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

So the lord took a rib from Adam's side
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
And He made Miss Eve to be his bride
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

He put them in a garden fair
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
He thought they'd be most happy there
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

Apples, peaches, pears and such
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
But of this tree you must not touch
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

Now Eve took a walk by the tree one day
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
And a serpent popped up in her way
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

"Now, Eve, this fruit tastes mighty fine"
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
"Just take one, the lord won't mind"
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

So Eve took a pick and then took a pull
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
And then she filled her apron full
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

Now Adam and Eve they tried to hide
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
But the lord looked down, and them he spied
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

"Now Adam you must leave this place"
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
"And earn your livin' by the sweat of your face"
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)

I knowed it knowed it, indeed I knowed it brother
I knowed it - whee! - dem bones are gonna rise again

So Adam took a pick and then took a plow
(Dem bones are gonna rise again)
And that's why we're all workin' now!
(Dem bones are gonna rise again !)

Could swear I've typed this in the past but can't find it in a cursory search, so, hot dog, let 'er go:

My Bone's Gonna Rise Again
as sung by Dave (McCarn) and Howard (Long), Victor 23577, recorded 19 May 1931 in Charlotte, NC. McCarn plays harmonica and guitar and undoubtedly composed the song, which would no longer be welcome at a church picnic.

(chorus)
I knowed it, knowed it, indeed I knowed it, sister
I knowed it, knowed it, my bone's gonna rise again.

I asked my gal to ride with me
(My bone's gonna rise again)
She got right upon my knee
(My bone's gonna rise again)
We had a big time that night till three
(My bone's gonna rise again)
But I never will be what I used to be
(My bone's gonna rise again)

Me and my wife went down to the lake
We eat hot dogs and chocolate cake
My wife sat down on a long black snake
When she got up it was too darn late

A hen and a rooster on the pole so hot
A romping and a playing all in their lot
The rooster looked at the hen's top knot
"Come here, sister, let me see what you got"

One day I went out to get
A billy goat whose name was Pet
And one day that goat I met
Right on the place where I used to set [sic]

Yet another take - with re-written lyrics - is the title song of Margaret Nelson's last album These Bones. She's turned it into a dancable tribute to the body's ability to be recycleable.

We use to sing this song in 4th grade as a class with one student leading it. Lets see... that was 28 years ago and I had always thought my 4th grade teacher wrote it. Little did I know.

From Old Plantation Hymns by William Eleazar Barton (Boston, etc.: Lamson, Wolffe and Company, 1899), page 32:


THESE BONES GWINETER RISE AGAIN

CHORUS: I know, I know, my Lord,
I know these bones gwineter rise again.

1. Heaven is a high and a lofty place
  These bones gwineter rise again.
But you can't get there if you hain't got the grace.
  These bones gwineter rise again.

2. Little did I think dat he was so nigh....
Spoke, and he made me laugh and cry....

3. When Gabriel makes his trumpet sound,...
De saints shall rise and bust de ground....

4. You kin hender me here, but you can't do it dah....
For he sits in de heavens and he answers prah....

Dem Bones Gonna Rise Again
Boy Scout Song

Chorus:
I know it brother, brother,
Indeed I know it brother, I know it HEY!
Dem bones gonna rise again.

The Lord he thought he'd make a man
Dem bones gonna rise again!
So he made Adam 'cordin' to a plan
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.

Peaches, pears, plums and such
Dem bones etc.
But the apple tree you better not touch
Dem bones etc.

One day Miss Eve was walkin' around
Dem bones etc.
Spied that tree all loaded down
Dem bones etc.

Serpent crawling around that trunk
Dem bones etc.
At Miss Eve his eye he wunk
Dem bones etc.

Eve, she took a little pull
Dem bones etc.
Then she filled her fig leaf full
Dem bones etc.

Adam he just took a little bite
Dem bones etc.
Said um'um woman that sure am nice
Dem bones etc.

One day the Lord was walking around
Dem bones etc.
Spied them peels all over the ground
Dem bones etc.

The Lord cried out in his mighty voice
Dem bones etc.
That shook the heavens to the joists
Dem bones etc.

Cried Adam, Adam, where art thou?
Dem bones etc.
Here I is, Lord, I's comin' now
Dem bones, etc.

Adam, Adam, did you eat these?
Dem bones etc.
No massa Lord, I 'spect it was Eve
Dem bones etc.

Then the Lord rose up in his might wrath
Dem bones etc.
Said ya'll just beat it down the path
Dem bones etc.

Put an angel at the door
Dem bones etc.
Said ya'll don't come 'round here no more
Dem bones etc.

Eve took the needle, Adam took the plow
Dem bones etc.
That's why we're all workin' now
Dem bones etc.

To this tale there ain't no more
Dem bones etc.
Eve got the apple and Adam got the core
Dem bones etc.

Dem Bones
