listen closely to the song 
and you'll figure it out... 


		   D  A/C#-D Bm A    B/Eb-Em  B/Eb-Em  A/C#  B
		   G  D/F#  Em  A/C#  A   G/B  G   A  A/C#  D  

		   D	 Em/D	     G/D	 A/D	  		
		   Victor was born the Spring of ‘44
		   D	     Em/D    G/D     A/D
		   And  never saw his father anymore
	          D/C           G/B   Dsus/A        Bm/Ab	
		   A child of sacrifice, a child of war
	       	 D/A     Bbaug	         Bm           G  A     D
		   Another son who never had a father after Leningrad

		   D	         Em/D	 G/D	     A/D	  		
		   Went off to school and learned to serve the state
		   D	         Em/D     G/D	    A/D
		   Followed the rules and drank his vodka straight
	          D/C       G/B     Dsus/A             Bm/Ab	
		   The only way to live was drown the hate
	       	 D/A         Bbaug	    Bm     	      Em  A    D
		   A Russian life was very sad, and such was life in Leningrad

	  	Dm		  	  Asus		  Am
		   I was born in ‘49, a cold war kid in McCarthy time
		   Gsus			G	   Asus		A
		   Stop ‘em at the 38th parallel, blast those yellow reds to hell
		   Dsus			Dm	    Asus    		Am		
		   Cold war kids were hard to kill, under their desks in an air raid drill
	       	   Gsus			G		 Asus  		A
		   Haven’t they heard we won the war, what do they keep on fighting for

		   D	    Em/D	G/D	     A/D	  		
		   Victor was sent to some red army town
		   D	          Em/D	 G/D	          A/D
		   Served out his time, became a circus clown
	          D/C            G/B      Dsus/A   Bm/Ab	
		   The greatest happiness he ever found
	       	 D/A          Bbaug	        Bm     	             G  A       D
		   Was making Russian children glad, and children lived in Leningrad

	  	Dm		  	  	Asus			Am
		   Children lived in Levittown, and hid in the shelters underground
		   	   Gsus		G		      Asus		A
		   Til the soviets turned their ships around, and tore the Cuban missiles down
		         Dsus		Dm		Asus		Am
		   And in that bright October sun, we knew our childhood days were done
	       	   	  Gsus			G	   Asus			A
		   And I watched my friends go off to war, what do they keep on fighting for

		   D	       Em/D	G/D	     A/D	  		
		   And so my child and I came to this place
		   D	          Em/D	  G/D	        A/D
		   To meet him eye to eye and face to face
	          D/C                  G/B          Dsus/A        Abdim	
		   He made my daughter laugh, then we embraced
	       	 D/A            Bbaug	         	 	Bm     	      G  A       D	E
		   We never knew what friends we had, until we came to Leningrad

		   A  E/Ab-A  F#m E     F#/Bb-Bm  F#/Bb-Bm  E/Ab  F#
		   D  A/C#  Bm  E7  
		   A  E/Ab-A  F#m E     F#/Bb-Bm  F#/Bb-Bm  E/Ab  F#
		   D  A/C#  Bm   E/Ab  E   D/F#  D   E  E/Ab   A
