haddocker Lyr/Chords Req: Russian Folk Songs (36) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Russian Folk Songs 07 Dec 07

The way it was explained to me by someone in the US Embassy in Russia, was that a line of the song contained an image of an eagle, which was a no-no, because of it being a symbol of the Romanovs. The government overlooked that little detail however, because of the great boost in morale it afforded the troops. To compensate for any criticism that would be forthcoming, they named a weapon after the song. That was the "Katyusha" Rocket. I can sing the song, but can only translate it phonetically.
