Moonlight And Vodka
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
Dm             Bb           A
Fix me a drink make it a strong one,
    Dm                Bb        A
Hey comrade a drink, make it a long one,
    Bb                       F 
My hands are shaking and my feet are numb.
    C                       Dm
My head is aching and the bar's going round
And I'm so down 
In this foreign town
Tonight there's a band,
    Bb           A        Dm 
It ain't such a bad one, play me a song
       Bb        A 
Don't make it a sad one
   Bb                       F 
I can't even talk to these Russian girls
     Fm                    G 
The beer is lousy and the food is worse
          Cm  Bb    Ab
And ist's so damned cold,
         Cm  Bb    Ab
Yes it's so damned cold.
I know it's hard to believe 
      Ab                       G
But I haven't been warm for a week;
Dm             Gm         C   Dm 
Moonlight and vodka takes me away
             Gm7      Bb            A
Midnight in Moscow is lunchtime in L.A,-
Oh play boys play;
Espionage is a serious business,
Well I've had enough of this serious business
That dancing girl is making eyes at me
I'm sure she's working for the K.G.B.
In this paradise, ah as cold as ice;
Moonlight and vodka, takes me away
Midnight in Moscow, is sunshine in L.A.
                    Dm - F - Bb - A
Yes in the good old U.S.A.
