Verse 1

Em
My Father came here as a boy from Czarist Russia,
          G                         B                    B7
And built Kaspersky in the Pale his Reservations for the Jews,
Em
His schooling was the Talmud and the Tora, 
                                     Am
The writings of the Rabbis and their laws,
B7                             B
Music was his door to freedom, Yiddish was his mother tongue,
                                   Em
And home was just a dreamland in a song.


Verse 2

He told us story of his Gentle Rabbi Father,
and his mother who was fearless in the hardships that they faced,
and when the drunken peasants got together,
and yelled lets kill the Jews for killing Christ,
His mother grabbed the rolling pin she used to make the sabbath bread,
and ran to crack their skulls my father said; 

Chorus

E                        B
It's not a nation, not a religion,
E                           B
This jewish spirit is still unbroken,
A                   E
its like the candle that mocks the darkness,
B                      E            E7
its like the song that shatters the silence,
A                      E
its like the fool who laughs at the dragon,
A                       E
its like the spark that signals rebellion,
B                               E
its like the dance that circles unending.

Em - B - Em
