Joshua Fought The Battle Of Jericho

  • Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
    and the walls came a-tumbling down

    You may talk about your men of Gideon
    You may talk about the men of Saul
    But there's none like good old Joshua
    at the battle of Jericho (that mornin')

    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
    and the walls came a-tumbling down

    Up to the walls of Jericho
    They marched with spears in hand
    "Come blow them ram horns," Joshua said
    "'Cause the battle is in our hands"

    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
    and the walls came a-tumbling down

    Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow
    The trumpets began to sound
    Joshua commanded the children to shout
    and the walls came a-tumblin' down (that mornin')

    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
    and the walls came a-tumbling down

    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho
    and the walls came a-tumbling down Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
