Len Wallace Lyr Req: Volga Boatman (42) RE: Lyr Req: Volga Boatman 18 Jan 00


Okay, I'm trying again. This time I'm sitting with a songbook in Russian, published in 1936 - "Komsomol Songs". A section on traditional songs carried the words to Volga Boatmen.

To be sung slowly, in 4/4 time.

I have counted out the beats to the words.

Chorus: 1Ei, 2ookh- 3nyem!4 1Ei, 2ookh- 3nyem!4

1Ye- 2shcho 3ra- 4zyeek,

1Ye- 2shcho da 3raz!4

Sing chorus again.

1Rah2 -zo-3vyom 4mi

1be-2ryo-3zoo,4

1rah2 -zo-3vyom 4mi

1koo-2drya-3voo!4

1Ai, 2da-da, 3ai 4da

1Ai- 2da-da, 3ai-4a,

1ra-2zo-3vyom 4mi

1koo-2drya-3voo!4
