Peter, Paul & Mary – Babylon/oh Sinner Man lyrics

By the waters, the waters of Babylon
We sat down and wept, and wept for thee Zion
We remember, we remember, we remember thee Zion

By the waters, the waters of Babylon
We sat down and wept, and wept for thee Zion
We remember, we remember, we remember thee Zion
We remember, we remember, we remember thee Zion
We remember, we remember, we remember thee Zion

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
All on that day

Run to the rock, rock was a meltin'
Run to the rock, rock was a meltin'
Run to the rock, rock was a meltin'
All on that day

Run to the sea, sea was a boilin'
Run to the sea, sea was a boilin'
Run to the sea, sea was a boilin'
All on that day

Run to the moon, moon was a bleedin'
Run to the moon, moon was a bleedin'
Run to the moon, moon was a bleedin'
All on that day

Run to the Lord, Lord won't you hide me?
Run to the Lord, Lord won't you hide me?
Run to the Lord, Lord won't you hide me?
All on that day

Lord said "Sinner man, you oughta be a prayin'"
Lord said "Sinner man, you oughta be a prayin'"
Lord said "Sinner man, you oughta be a prayin'"
All on that day

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to
All on that day
