verse:

                 G

By the rivers of babylon

             G

Where he sat down

             D

and there he wept

                   G

when he remembered Zion

 

 

chorus:

 

oh 'fore the wicked (this might actually be 'It was the wicked' but        

I'm not sure)

G

carry us away captivity 

  C

required from us a song

G

how can we sing King Alfa's song

      D          G

In a strange land

           

           G            D

so let the words of our mouth

              G           D

and the meditation of our heart

       G             D      now mute strings

be acceptable in thy sight

         G

override (I'm not sure this line is right, any suggestions?)

 

repeat opening riff

 

play verse

 

now play chorus

 

G

how can we sing King Alfa's song

     D           G

in a strange land

 

well that's about it, thanks
