Rivers of Babylon
Chords used: B, B7, F#7, E (Repetition of chords used)

[Chorus]

                B
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
        F#7                     B
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
                B
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
        F#7                     B
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.


[Verse]

When the wicked
B               B7
Carried us away in captivity
E               B
Required from us a song
                                       F#7
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land


When the wicked
B               B7
Carried us away in captivity
E               B
Requiring from us a song
                                       F#7
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land


[Bridge]

        B         F#7          B              F#7
Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
        B       F#7      B
be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

        B         F#7          B              F#7
Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
        B       F#7      B
be acceptable in thy sight here tonight


[Chorus]

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
        F#7                     B
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
                B
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
        F#7                     B
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.

The chord progressions and locations are spot on, but I think the whole song should be transposed up into C (so play C, G7 and F instead of B, F#7 and E). If you play C in the 'Bb' shape on 3rd fret and G7 barred on 3rd fret it sounds about right. Thanks for the tab!

I agree with sholdway. Just transpose the song +1 and the chords are accurate. The locations aren't spot on and there is a C (B before transposing) at "land" in "in a atrange land", but overall it works just fine.
