Em D Em They crossed over the border the hour before dawn D Cmaj7 Moving in lines through the day G D Am Most of our planes were destroyed on the ground where they lay Em D Em Waiting for orders we held in the wood D Cmaj7 Word from the front never came G D Am By evening the sound of the gunfire was miles away E Fmaj7 Ah softly we move through the shadows, slip away through the trees E Fmaj7 Crossing their lines in the mists in the fields on our hands and our knees C G C G E And all that I ever, was able to see Am G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7 Em The fire in the air, glowing red, silhouetting the smoke on the breeze D Em All summer they drove us back through the Ukraine D Cmaj7 Smolensk and Viasma soon fell G D Am By autumn we stood with our backs to the town of Orel Em D Em Closer and closer to Moscow they come D Cmaj7 Riding the wind like a bell G D Am General Guderian stands at the crest of the hill E Fmaj7 Winter brought with her the rains, oceans of mud filled the roads E Fmaj7 Glueing the tracks of their tanks to the ground while the sky filled with snow C G C G E And all that I ever, was able to see Am G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7 The fire in the air glowing red, silhouetting the snow on the breeze. Am G Fmaj7 Ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhhh x4 Am G Fmaj7 In the footsteps of Napoleon the shadow figures stagger through the winter Am G Fmaj7 Falling back before the gates of Moscow, standing in the wings like an avenger Am G Fmaj7 And far away behind their lines the partisans are stirring in the forest Am G Fmaj7 Coming unexpectedly upon their outposts growing like a promise Am G You'll never know, you'll never know which way to turn, which way to look Fmaj7 you'll never see us Am G As we're stealing through the blackness of the night, you'll never know Fmaj7 you'll never hear us G Fmaj7 E Fmaj7 And the evening sings in a voice of amber the dawn is surely coming G Fmaj7 E Fmaj7 Em The morning road leads to Stalingrad and the sky is, softly humming D Em Two broken tigers on fire in the night D Cmaj7 Flicker their souls to the wind G D Am We wait in the lines for the final approach to begin Em D Em It's been almost four years that I've carried a gun D Cmaj7 At home it will almost be spring G D Am The flames of the tigers are lighting the road to Berlin E Fmaj7 Ah, quickly we move through the ruins that bow to the ground E Fmaj7 The old men and children they throw out to face us, they can't slow us down C G C G E And all that I ever, was able to see Am G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7 The eyes of the city are opening now it's the end of the dream Am G Fmaj7 Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh x4 Am G Fmaj7 I'm coming home, I'm coming home, you can taste it in the wind the war is over Am G Fmaj7 And I listen to the clicking of the train wheels as we roll across the border Am G Fmaj7 And they ask me of the time I was caught behind their lines and taken prisoner Am G Fmaj7 They only held me for a day a lucky break, I say, they turn and listen closer Am G I'll never know, I'll never know why I was taken from the line Fmaj7 and all the others Am G Fmaj7 To board a special train and journey deep into the heart of holy Russia G Fmaj7 E Fmaj7 And it's cold and damp in the transit camp and the air is still and sullen G Fmaj7 E Fmaj7 The pale sun of October whispers the snow will soon be coming G Fmaj7 E Fmaj7 And I wonder when I'll be home again, and the morning answers, never G Fmaj7 E And the evening sighs and the steely Russian skies go on Fmaj7 F
