Back in the USSR


Flew in from Miami Beach, B.O.A.C, didn't get to sleep last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee, man I had a dreadful flight

Back in the USSR, don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the USSR

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee it's good to be back home
Leave it to tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the west behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's on my mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi mind

Show me round your snow-peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy's farm
Let me hear your balalaikas rining out
Come and keep your comrade warm

To be honest, I think that the right progression is " A -D -C- D"

A- D -C- D
Bridge: E - G - A
Middle eight: D A
D - D7 - Am - B7
Reprise : A -D -C -D"
Paul plays it like that ( until he keeps the pitch for A !! )
