Bag O' Bones

Thump the altar , shake the rattle
Lead around like a herd of cattle
Speak in tongues , the golden calf
Answer the question never asked
Can you hear your spirit moan
 In this old bag o' bones ?

Touch the snake ,drink the fruit
Harvest time is comin' soon
See the stars ,feel the moon
And the earth rumble too
Can you hear your spirit moan
In this old bag o' bones

Jericho , Tinbucktoo
Stop , listen ,whos callin' you ?
They called me long time ago
Ask if I answered yes or no
Can you hear your spirit moan
In this old bag o' bones ?

Strike a note for a song
Maybe someone will sing along
Speak a word ,dance on coals
Make that dollar ,sale that soul
Can you hear your spirit moan
In this old bag o' bones ?

Goodness gracious , sakes alive
Got the mojo ,got the jive
All the bread has turned to stone
This young man is rollin' home
Can you hear your spirit moan
In this old Bag o' bones ?
