BRIDGE
[A]                Well the [D]Ukraine girls really knock me out
They [A]leave the west behind
And [D]Moscow [F#m/C#]girls make me [Am/C]sing and shout[B7]
     [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
Eb xx5343

Peace, love, and soul,
