Jboram, a new thread asking for the specific song may be a better idea. There's a link at the top of the thread lists that shows you how to create a new link.

Jboram, other resources you will want to use at Mudcat to look for the song are:

1. The Filter search at the top of the daily threadlist, using the term |bones| to look for it by the title you know or a similar titling.

2. The African-American Spirituals Permathread, which contains an index in it to a number of posted spirituals as well as informatioin on the genre in h=general and titling complications in particular.

3. The Lyrics & Knowledge Search (blue-gray box at the top of any page here), although you may have to try various search terms to use it effectively.

Subject: Lyr Add: MY BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN
From: 12-stringer
Date: 08 Mar 07 - 02:55 PM

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 good 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 hotdogs and chocolate cake
My wife sat down on a long blacksnake
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,
Said "Come here, sister, let's see what you got."

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

Dave (McCarn) & Howard (Long), "My Bone's Gonna Rise Again." Victor 23577, recorded 19 May 1931, Charlotte, NC. I only know this from an LP dub, not the original shellac, but Tony Russell's CMR 1921-1942 indicates the apostrophe is sic in the 78 title label.

From a link in one of the previously-crosslinked threads. Looks to me like a minstrel song.

~Susan

1. Lord he thought he'd make a man
Dem bones gonna rise again
Took a little water, took a little sand
Dem bones gonna rise again

Chorus:
I know it, know it,
Indeed I know it -
Brother, I know it, Whee!
Dem bones gonna rise again.

2. Put him in that garden fair
Dem bones gonna rise again
Saw him mighty lonely there
Dem bones gonna rise again

3. Took a rib from Adam's side
Dem bones gonna rise again
Made Miss Eve to be his bride.
Dem bones gonna rise again.

4. Put them in that garden fair
Dem bones gonna rise again
Saw them mighty happy there.
Dem bones gonna rise again

5. Apples, peaches, pears and such
Dem bones gonna rise again
But one fruit you must not touch.
Dem bones gonna rise again

6. Round that tree old Satan slunk
Dem bones gonna rise again
At Miss Eve his eye he wunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again

7. My that fruit looks mighty fine
Dem bones gonna rise again
Take a bite, the Lord won't mind.
Dem bones gonna rise again

8. So she took a pick and she took a pull
Dem bones gonna rise again
Then she filled her apron full.
Dem bones gonna rise again

9. Next day when the Lord came round
Dem bones gonna rise again
Saw those cores all over the ground.
Dem bones gonna rise again

10. Adam, Adam, where art thou?
Dem bones gonna rise again
Here I am Lord, coming now!
Dem bones gonna rise again

11. Adam who these cores did leave?
Dem bones gonna rise again
Wasn't me Lord, must a been Eve.
Dem bones gonna rise again

12. Adam you must leave this place
Dem bones gonna rise again
Earn your bread by the sweat of your face.
Dem bones gonna rise again

13. So he took a pick and he took a plow
Dem bones gonna rise again
And that's why we're all singing now.
Dem bones gonna rise again

14. This is the end, there ain't no more
Dem bones gonna rise again
Eve got the apple, Adam got the core.
Dem bones gonna rise again

15. Moral of the story be
Dem bones gonna rise again
Don't leave your cores for the Lord to see.
Dem bones gonna rise again

From The Library of Congress American Memory Collection:

DESE BONES SHALL RISE AGAIN
George W. Scott
Boston: John F. Perry & Co., 1880.

1. Oh, young children, don't be shamed
    Dese bones shall rise again.
To deny your father's name.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
Judgment day is rollin' round.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
When de gospel trumpet it shall sound.
    Dese bones shall rise again.

CHORUS: Den I know, I do know, children,
I know dat dese bones shall rise again.
Den I know, I do know, children,
I know dat dese bones shall rise again.

2. Some dese mornin's bright and fair,
    Dese bones shall rise again.
We'll meet de Lord up in de air.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
I know my back's chock full ob sin.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
I know Uncle Pete's gwine to let me in.
    Dese bones shall rise again.

3. Come, ye children, go wid me.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
I'se gwine whar de Lord will sot us free.
    Dese bones shall rise again.
I'll shake de dust right off my feet,
    Dese bones shall rise again.
And walk up and down dem golden streets.
    Dese bones shall rise again.

Subject: Lyr Add: 'ESE BONES GUINA RISE AGIN
From: oldhippie

another version.....

'ESE BONES GUINA RISE AGIN


Lawd he made a garden fair,
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
Made Marse Adam an' He put him there,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

REFRAIN:
Says, "I knowed it, knowed it,
Indeed I knowed it, sistuh;
Iknowed it.
'Ese bones guina rise agin."

Took a rib from Adam's side,
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
Made Miss Eve fo' to be his bride,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

In that garden Satan slunk;
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
At Miss Eve his eye he wunk,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

At the tree she took a pull,
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
Then she filled her apron full,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

To that gardenth' Laúd come down;
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
At that pair how He did frown,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

"Git right out'n this garden fair";
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
An' you cain't find no rest nowhere,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

"Earn yo' living by the sweat o' yo' brow,"
'Ese bones guina rise agin;
An' I guess that's whut they's a-doin' now,
'Ese bones guina rise agin.

Here's an interesting comment about this spiritual:

"I thumbed through the book I came across this song [These Bones Gonna Rise Again], which is an old spiritual tune. Something resonated with me as I tried singing it, and the history of the song sounded intriguing. The song had been performed with comic intent for a long time, and was often performed as a parody by university students in the first part of the 20th century."...

There are questions about this rather theatrical song, another version in the DT, linked at the top of this thread, having ever part of the old spiritual songs. It does not seem to be one of the old spirituals, but originally a minstrel jubilee song, like some composed by Bland (Scott composition posted above, 1880).

The one from Saint Helena (posted today), "O Lord, dese bones of mine," and the "Dry Bones" in the DT, from "Mellows," coll. by Kennedy, are typical of those sung in the Black churches and are spirituals in the old sense.

Of course both Blacks and Whites, as entertainers, and gospel singers, long ago adopted "Dese Bones...," so it is now a religious as well as a 'popular' song, and included in collections of spiritual songs.

I'm looking for a song similar to this - but different! It was on an old "red" record (yes - the record itself was red) of mum's. The line I remember in the chorus is
".....Ezekiel 37 10
These old bones are gonna wake up walking
These old bones are gonna rise again!"

Any ideas anyone?

Chorus:
This I know by the Bible
These old bones are gonna rise again
These old bones are gonna rise again
These old bones are gonna rise again
Ezekiel said it in the Bible chapter 37:10,
These old bones are gonna wake up walking
These old bones are gonna rise again.

Verse:
1. My dear brother faint and feeble
    My dear sister weak and worn
    We're gonna wind up in the bone yard
    Just as sure as we were born
    This old world may toss and tumble
    This old world may rock and roll
    But come that Resurrection morning
    We are gonna take a stroll.

2. Now in that Resurrection valley
    When the Lord commands the way
    And He breathes new life eternal
    In these old bones again
    All the saints will wake up singing
    And we'll all join in the victory throng
    To a land beyond the river
    To a life that has no end.
