Subject: RE: Origins: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More)
There are two versions in the Bodlian collection that I found, but it could be that they are not picked up by your search. One I found was the J Harding of Preston which you must have found too, the other was printed by Wilson of Bideford.

Having finally put all the bits and variations I have found onto something more organised than my first jottings I have an A4 sheet of them now, verses and variations. It seems to have undergone various changes which seems strange - it is the only song I have which is so altered.

Unfortunately I have not kept any detailed notes of where the different bits came from - I have no great interest in sources I'm afraid. If asked 'Who's version was that?' my usual response is 'Mine.'
