Lindisfarne - Mother Russia



[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
              Em      Am                  Em    C7
Lenin lies so stately, Karl's a forgotten man
                  F           D7                  G            Am
Joseph played his cards wrong, 'cause he couldn't understand


[Verse 2]
           Em     Am                      Em     C7
History is bunkum, I heard, some American said
                           F      D7                   G                 G7
If you can't deal with the living, you might as well be with the dead


[Chorus]
       C      G                        C                    A7
Mother Russia, your sons have left you crying in the rain
                      Dm        E Am             D7           G    E7
Your sadness tears my heart out,    but it isn't easy to explain____


[Interlude]
Am  Em  Am  Em  Am


[Verse 3]
                Em                Am                    Em    C7
The rat race is coming to get you, his bony hands reach long
                     F      D7             G               Am
You might as well forget you ever played a different song


[Verse 4]
              Em         Am                    Em    C7
No Tolstoy no Tchaikovsky gonna get you out of this
                         F               D7                 G           F G
Just close your eyes and turn your cheek, get ready for the Judas kiss


[Chorus]
       C      G                        C                    A7
Mother Russia, your sons have left you crying in the rain
                      Dm        E Am             D7        G 
Your sadness tears my heart out,    but it isn't easy to explain
  C                          G            C               F
I walk your fields in wonder, as I softly call your name
                    Dm          E
Mamma, Mamma, Mamma, isn't it a shame
           Am  Em  Am  Em
Isn't it a shame
           Am            Em      Am      Em
Isn't it a shame (Mother Russia  -  whoa-oh)
           Am            Em      Am      Em       Am
Isn't it a shame (Mother Russia  -  whoa-oh, whoa-oh)


[Verse 5]
                      Em    Am                     Em    C7
In war your sons were taken, in peace they built a wall
                      F     D7                  G                      F G
Their future's now forsaken, who'll be there to break your fall?


[Chorus]    (## repeat, adlib and fade to end ##)
       C      G                        C                    A7
Mother Russia, your sons have left you crying in the rain
                      Dm        E Am                  D7        G 
Your sadness tears my heart out,    do you think it's easy to explain
  C                          G            C               F
I walk your fields in wonder, as I softly call your name
                    Dm          E
Mamma, Mamma, Mamma, isn't it a shame
           Am  Em  Am  Em
Isn't it a shame
           Am            Em
Isn't it a shame (Mother Russia)
           Am          Em
Isn't it a shame (whoa-oh)
              Am            Em      Am
Mamma, Mamma, Mamma (Mother Russia)
           Em          Am         Em
Isn't it a shame (whoa-oh, Mother Russia)
              Am            Em      Am
Mamma, Mamma, Mamma (Mother Russia)
