By the rivers of babylon
Where he sat down
G            D
And there he went
D                  G
When he remembered Zion
Alpha the wicked, carrry us away
G         C                 G
captivity requirs from us a song
G                                      D       G
how can we sing kind alpha's song in a strange land
G                       D
so let the words of our mouth
D           G              D
and the meditations of our heart
D        G           D
be exceptable in thy sight (strum D and then pause)
over I (do not play anything at "over" and resume playing at "I")

Dude this isn't a Marley song, it was written by Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton. I've never heard the origonal but Sublime does a nice cover.

marley never did this song...
why is it that whenever someone hears reggae they always assume it was Bob Marley or that Marley has covered it.
Songs like smoke two joints and this one sound nothing like Marley at all! now don't get me wrong here i love Bob Marley but i just don't get why they all think he has written or covered every single reggae song out there...
