 A child of sacrifice, a     child of war
C/G        G#dim         Am        F     G       C
 Another son who never had a father after Leningrad

____Verse: 2

C        Dm/C         F/C              G/C
 Went off to school____and learned to serve the state
C              Dm/C   F/C            G/C
 Followed the rules____and drank his vodka straight
C7/Bb     F/A       Csus/G  C/G        D/F#
 The only way to live was   drown the hate
C/G         G#dim         Am
 A Russian life was very sad
             D      G        C
 And such was life in Leningrad

____Bridge: 1

 I was born in '49
 A cold war kid in McCarthy time
 Fsus                 F
 Stop 'em at the 38th Parallel
 Gsus               G
 Blast those yellow reds to hell
     Csus               Cm
 And cold war kids were hard to kill
 Gsus                   Gm
 Under their desk in an air raid drill
 Fsus                  F
 Haven't they heard we won the war
 Gsus                 G
 What do they keep on fighting for?

____Verse: 3

C         Dm/C  F/C           G/C
 Viktor was sent to some Red Army town
C            Dm/C    F/C       G/C   G/B
 Served out his time, became a cir__cus clown
C7/Bb          F/A     Csus/G  C/G    D/F#
 The greatest happiness he'd____ever found
C/G          G#dim             Am
 Was making Russian children glad
             F       G        C
 And children lived in Leningrad

____Bridge: 2

 But children lived in Levittown
 And hid in the shelters underground
            Fsus               F
 Until the Soviets turned their ships around
Gsus                 G
 And tore the Cuban missiles down
     Csus             Cm
 And in that bright October sun
    Gsus               Gm
 We knew our childhood days were done
      Fsus                   F
 And I watched my friends go off to war
 Gsus                 G
 What do they keep on fighting for?

____Verse: 4

C         Dm/C       F/C  G/C
 And so my child and I came to this place
C          Dm/C     F/C    G/C    G/B
 To meet him eye to eye and face to face
C7/Bb      F/A           Csus/G   C/G   D/F#
 He made my daughter laugh, then we embraced
C/G          G#dim              Am
 We never knew what friends we had
           D    G        C  D
 Until we came to Leningrad


 G  D/G  Am  E/A  
 C/E  G/B  Am  D/F#  D (Repeat)
 C  D  G
