"Have You Heard About Joshua and the Battle of Jericho" starts chorus

Post by caf0922 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 7:12 pm

I am searching for a variation of the song "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho" that my choir sang in church many years ago. It was a different arrangement from the classic song. It started with males singing "have you heard about joshua" followed by females singing "and the battle of Jericho". The same is repeated except that the females say "and the battle of Jericho-o-o-o". This is followed by a short verse by a soloist. Then, entire choir sings-"hallelujah, and the walls came a-tumbling, the walls came a-tumbling, the walls came (clap-clap) tumbling down.

That's all I can remember. Does anyone else remember this song? If you do, please respond by email to me at [email]profesora631@gmail.com.[/email]
thank you

Can ya'll put the lyrics on this post, too?

I know another person who is looking for a song like this.
Then I can send them over here to read the lyrics.

Hello,
The lyrics that I remember are:
Chorus
Have you heard about Joshua (males)
and the battle of Jericho (females)
Have you heard about Joshua (males)
and the battle of Jericho-o-o-o (females)

Verse by soloist:
Was might ________ battle
down in Jericho

Chorus
Hallelujah, and the walls came a-tumbling,
the walls came a-tumbling
the walls came (clap-clap)
tumbling down.

Unfortunately, that's all I remember. Hope you can help. (-:

I too am searching for this song! A choir at my church sang this I believe in the late 60’s. There is a song by The Davis Sisters called Twelve Gates to the City written by Rev, Gary Davis that sounds an awful lot like it but I find in my research, it’s not in either of their repertoires. PLEASE let me know if you have any luck and I will do the same,
