Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down

You can talk about your man, Gideon
You can talk about your man Saul
But the greatest story I ever heard was all about Jericho's fall

Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down

The Lord he told old Joshua the odds ain't in your hand
But if you'll do just like I say you'll be the better man
On the first day march around first time
By the seventh 40 in all
And on the 7th day blow your horns and watch them walls fall

Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down

I was born in a world of pain
I was born in a world of sin
But when I get to Heaven's Gate
The Lord is going to take my hand

Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down

Song facts

"I had the pleasure of doing some shows with Jim Avett in which we did a lot of gospel songs. We made some stabs at recording a gospel record but too many things got in the way. However, this one recording came out really well. Robert and Neal added other players. We play this live quite often. Thanks Jim." - David Childers
