    עַל נַהֲרוֹת בָּבֶל שָׁם יָשַׁבְנוּ גַּם בָּכִינוּ, בְּזָכְרֵנוּ אֶת צִיּוֹן.

    1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 4 How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land? 5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. 6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Psalm 137:1

    Just got the Don Mclean CD and this began playing. I only knew American Pie and Vincent. Since I heard this one I can't stop replaying it in my car. I tried to find it on Spotify, but they don't have this version. This is the best version!!! It gives me chill bumps.

    Way back in the early 80s, I taught this as a round to a Presbyterian and Lutheran Women's retreat in Humboldt County (far northern California).

    Thank you for posting this. I used to have the live album on cassette; it was my dad's... tape was lost, and the live (Cd's, then available) didn't include Babylon for some reason.

    Such a beautiful sounding song with music written by Don McLean. The tune is memorable, and very enjoyable to sing. It's pastiche, reminiscent of renaissance rounds, is right up my alley. It's unfortunate that I will never sing it. The text is from Psalm 137. It's about regret and the contemplation of revenge including the joy of dashing Babylonian children on the rocks.
