[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
