BRIDGE

A D

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out

A

They leave the west behind

D F#m/C# Am/C B7

And Moscow girls make me sing and shout

E7 D7 A

That Georgia's always on my-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

Been away so long I hardly knew the place,

Gee it's good to be back home

Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case,

Honey disconnect the phone

Show me round your snow peaked mountains way down south,

take me to your daddy's farm

Let me hear you balalaikas ringing out,

come and keep your comrade warm
