These old bones will tell your story These old bones will never lie These old bones will tell you surely What you can't see with your eye These old bones I shake and rattle These old bones I toss and roll And it's all in where they scatter Tells you what the future holds Oh, she lived up on the mountain Eleven miles or so from town With a one-eyed cat named Wink A billy goat and a blue tick hound Her graying hair was braided And wrapped around her head And her dress was long and faded And her home a rusty shed In a little pouch of burlap Tied with a piece of twine There were bones all shapes and sizes Gathered through the course of time She'd throw them out before you She swore that she could see The present, past and future She could ready your destiny Everybody knew about her Came to get their fortune read Concerning health and wealth and power Who to love and when to wed Well, I just like helping people I'm just glad that I could help Why, I know everybody's secrets But I keep it to myself These old bones will tell your story These old bones will never lie These old bones will tell you surely What you can't see with your eye These old bones I shake and rattle These old bones I toss and roll And it's all in where they scatter Tells you what the future holds Some called her witchy woman Some said she was insane Some said she was a prophet Still everybody came Just because a body's different Well, that don't make eem mad Well, they've crucified a many For the special gifts they've had I had often heard about her Dreamed about her now and then For I, too, was clairvoyant Came about when I was ten I was fascinated with her And the things I'd heard about And I knew some day I'd meet her And one day it came about Well, I know'd that you euz a'coming I could feel it in my bones These old bones have also told me That I won't be here for long Did you know that you euz adopted?
