THOSE WERE THE DAYS - Leningrad Cowboys

original Dorogoi Dlinnoyu by Alexander Vertinsky (1925)
written by Boris Fomin, lyrics by Konstantin Podrevskii
english lyrics by Gene Raskin

Here's a short movie music video made by Aki Kaurismäki: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DoxWBZ8ekI

Use a capo on 1. and transpose to Am. 
If you have Eb tune, transpose to Bm. 
I dont' think they play the 7-chords, 
you can take them away with simplify.

[Intro]
Bbm  Ebm  F7  Bbm  Bbm 

[Verse 1]
Bbm                          Bbm
Once upon a time there was a tavern
Bb7                               Ebm
Where we used to raise a glass or two
  Ebm                            Bbm
Remember how we laughed away the hours
    C7                             F7        
and think about the great things we would do
N.C

[Chorus]
               Bbm
Those were the days, my friend
                  Ebm
We thought they'd never end
              Ab       Ab7        Db
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
              Ebm
We'd live the life we'd choose
               Bbm
We'd fight and never lose
            F7                         Bbm
For we were young and sure to have our way

[Chorus]
F7       Bbm
La La La Laa La La
         Ebm
La La La Laa La La
         Ab     Ab7          Db
La La La Laa La Laa La La La Laa
         Ebm
La La La Laa La La
         Bbm
La La La Laa La La
         F7                 Bbm   Bbm
La La La Laa La La La La La Laa

[Verse 2]
Bbm                             Bbm
Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Bb7                           Ebm
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
Ebm                         Bbm
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
C7                        F7
Was that lonely woman really me?
N.C.

[Chorus]
               Bbm
Those were the days, my friend
                  Ebm
We thought they'd never end
              Ab       Ab7        Db
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
              Ebm
We'd live the life we'd choose
               Bbm
We'd fight and never lose
            F7                         Bbm
For we were young and sure to have our way

[Chorus]
F7       Bbm
La La La Laa La La
         Ebm
La La La Laa La La
         Ab     Ab7          Db
La La La Laa La Laa La La La Laa
         Ebm
La La La Laa La La
         Bbm
La La La Laa La La
         F7                 
La La La Laa La La La La La Laa

[Interlude 1]
  Bbm           Bbm
Padam, padam, padam
     Bbm                      F
Il arrive en courant derrière moi
  F             F
Padam, padam, padam
      F                        Bbm   Bbm
Il me fait le coup du souviens-toi

[Verse 3]
Bbm                                  Bbm
Through the door there came familiar laughter
  Bb7                                 Ebm
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Ebm                               Bbm
Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser
    C7                                F7
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same
N.C.

[Chorus]
               Bbm
Those were the days, my friend
                  Ebm
We thought they'd never end
              Ab       Ab7        Db
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
              Ebm
We'd live the life we'd choose
               Bbm
We'd fight and never lose
            F7                         Bbm
For we were young and sure to have our way
Bbm
Laa la la

[Interlude 2]
Bbm     F
Tiho vokrug
F7              Bbm
Sopki pokryty mgloj
Bbm                  Ebm
Vot is-za tutsch blesnula luna
  Bbm     F      Bbm
Mogili hranyat pokoj

(Not sure about the lyrics here, took them from wikia. 
This part is from a russian song "Na sopkah Mantšžurii", 
"On the hills of Manchuria" in english...)

F7       Bbm
La La La Laa La La
         Ebm
