EZEKIEL SAW THE WHEEL

CHORUS:
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air;
Ezekiel saw the wheel
Way up in the middle of the air!
The big wheel runs by faith,
Little wheel runs by the grace of
  God,
A wheel in a wheel,
Way up in the middle of the air!

I'll tell you what a hypocrite'll do,
Way up in the middle of the air
He'll talk about me and he'll talk
  about you,
Way in the middle of the air!

CHORUS:

Some go to church for to sing and
  shout,
Way in the middle of the air,
Before six months they've all turned
  out,
Way in the middle of the air:

CHORUS:
 

DOWN IN THE VALLEY

Down the valley, valley so low,
Hang your head over, hear the wind
  blow.
Hear the wind blow, love, hear the
  wind blow,
Hang your head over, hear the wind
  blow.

If you don't love me, love whom you
  please,
Throw your arms round me, give my
  heart ease.
Give my heart ease, love, give my
  heart ease,
Throw your arms round me, give my
  heart ease.

Write me a letter, send it by mail,
Send it in care of the Birmingham Jail.
Birmingham Jail, love, Birmingham
  Jail, 
Send it in care of the Birmingham Jail.

Build me a castle, forty feet high,
So I can see her as she goes by.
                            (cont.)

As she goes by, dear, as she goes by,
So I can see her as she goes by.

Roses love sunshine, violets love dew,
Angels in heaven know I love you.
Know I love you, dear, know I love you
Angels in heaven know I love you.
 

RIDDLE SONG

I gave my love a cherry that has no
  stone,
I gave my love a chicken that has no
  bone,
I gave my love a ring that has no end,
I gave my love a baby that's no cryin'.

How can there be a cherry that has no
  stone,
How can there be a chicken that has
  no bone,
How can there be a ring that has no
  end,
How can there be a baby with no
  cryin'?

A cherry when it's blooming. It has
  no stone,
A chicken when it's pipping, it has
  no bone,
A ring when it's rolling, it has no
  end,
A baby when it's sleeping, there's no
  cryin'.

MARY, DON'T YOU WEEP

CHORUS:
Oh Mary, don't you weep, don't you
  mourn (Repeat)
Pharaoh's army got drownded,
Oh Mary, don't you weep.

If I could I surely would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood.
Pharaoh's army got drownded,
Oh, Mary don't you weep.

CHORUS:

One of these nights about 12 o'clock
This old world's going to reel and
  rock.
Pharaoh's army got drownded,
Oh, Mary, don't you weep.

CHORUS:
