Subject: RE: REQ: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More)
I have a six verse version trawled from the Bodleian Library.
there are the three verses in the Digitrad, with minor variations in two of them, plus three more.
My favourite lines in the additions -'See the city all on fire Clap your hands and fan the flames'
not your average milk and water stuff.
The chorus used to be a favourite on the 'battlefield' of the roundhead association in the 70's - was it an anachronismfor the Civil war?
