OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
By the rivers of Babylon
There is a town

Now the men star right
You roll it one time around, allemande left and weave
By the rivers of Babylon
Swing your girl and promenade
And there we wept
When we remembered Zion


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade half around the ring
Sides pass the ocean there, extend
Relay the deucey, here we go Lucy
In a strange land
Carry us away across the sea

Swing your corner and promenade
How shall we sing of our song
In a strange land


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Let the words of our mouths
And the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight
Here tonight
allemande and weave
Let the words of our mouths
Swing the lady and promenade
Be acceptable in thy sight
Here tonight


TAG

Swing your girl
And there we wept
When we remembered Zion

Rivers Of Babylon
 
 

By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept when he remembered Zion.

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept when he remembered Zion.

By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept when he remembered Zion.

Lyrics by Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton.
Recorded by Linda Ronstadt; Boney M; Don McLean; others.
