Subject: RE: REQ: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More)
"Babylon is fallen" is by Henry Clay Work, but the 'to ris again no more' isn't part of the original words. It should be 'And we's agwine to occupy de land.' Song and tune start on p. 32 of 'Henry Clay Work: Songs', Da Capo Press (reprint), 1974
