Babushka One

A tribute to the old ladies who are still living in a village outside chernobyl 26 years after the reactor meltdown. You can read/watch about them here http://thebabushkasofchernobyl.com/

F#, A7, Bb, D, and one other B chord like an Am on the 2nd fret

Parishev village is five below zero
Nestled within the exclusion zone
Strontium brightly decays in the shadows
Motherland always is home

When the soldiers came to evacuate us
we ran to the cellar to hide
I’m not afraid of anything now
]we’re old but we survive

She flew like an eagle these 26 years
over radioactive snow
The invisible enemy wiped out the spring
Babushka comes in from the cold

With thanks to the film makers of “Chernobyl Babushkas”
