A                          D          C                      D

Flew in from Miami Beach B.O.A.C., didn't get to bed last night

   A                       D               C                   D

On the way a pape bag was on my knee, man I had a dreadful flight


D                    A    (or play riff starting here, going over next line)

I'm back in the USSR

C                                D

 You don't know how lucky you are, boy

D                 A          D   Eb   E

 Back in the USSR




D/E             G/E

Back in the US, back in the US, back in the USSR



A                        D

                Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out


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
