G5             C5          C5 *          E5
In the German sky there once was a plane
C5            G5               D5                E5
It carries 71 children and their mothers to spain
D5                            G5
Well this plane was sure something
C5 *                        E5
It was full of young Russians
C5        G5            D5         E5
Proudly to gander at topics discussin'
D5          G5        C5 *            E5 
Now Pete the Swiss was doublin' shifts
C5          G5        D5               E5
Jugglin' the iron controlled by his lips
D5              C5               D5           E5
Not a minute too soon children fell to their doom
C5                G5           D5           E5
Struck dead in the air, orphan a father or two
D5                    G5       C5          G5
He just laid in the alley Now orphan Vitaly 
C5            G5    C5              G5
met a young girl married her quickly
C5                G5    C5                      G5
Was so damn in love that they had their two kids
C5           G5   C5                   G5
Had a great job; construction in Spain
C5                     G5       C5                    G5
They were going to see Papa from Caucasus mountain range
C5             G5           C5                  G5
Now that damn Swissman crashed them into a plane
C5                      G5
I will find where he lives
C5            G5    C5                    G5
Speak to his face with the blood in my eyes
       D5              E5
He will see            my pain

D5            G5
Many weeks passed
D5           E5
For fear of a sui
C5                  G5      D5         E5
The airline said nothin, Vitaly turned blue
D5                    C5
For the killing they done
C5 *           E5
No apology made
C5                    G5        D5            E5
Is it 'cause we are Russian you treat us this way
D5                         G5    D5         E5
Through a friend that he new Vitaly found Pete
C5                G5        D5         E5
He came to his doorstep expecting to speak
D5                   C5
But Pete blew him off
D5                          E5
Threw down the pictures Vi brought
C5              G5       D5         E5
Pictures of the 3 most important he lost

       D5    G5   /F#5  /E5  G5
As the pictures fell down
D5             E5
Re-enacting the day
C5            G5            D5        E5
Vitaly's eye blackened no human remained
D5                     G5
Well so much can be said
C5                   G5
For a man in his shoes
C5                     G5                D5         E5
There's no glamour in vengeance There's only this rule:
D5                 C5      D5           E5
That the lives you lost can never come back
C5            G5            D5         E5
And the deed in return is worse than the act

D5            C5          D5            E5
Blinded by love and the pain of his loss
C5           G5            D5         E5
He could not remember the act of assault
D5              G5              D5        E5
He awoke in his room all covered in blood
C5                      G5            D5         E5
The cops they'd come knockin they knew what he'd done

D5                 C5         D5       E5
The government leaned Vitaly was free

C5                 G5          D5         E5
They called him the hero, a man above kings
D5             C5        D5                  E5
A shadow of man, they were praising his deed

C5      G5
He was alone
C5                G5
Killed a father of 3
C5               G5   C5                    G5
No deed that he did could make him complete
C5                   G5        C5             G5
It could have been different if only Pete said
C5                  G5         C5           G5
"I'm sorry for killin' the few joys you had"
C5                G5      C5            G5
But now there's nothin' for Vitaly to do
C5             G5        C5            G5
But step off a cliff or hang in the noose
C5              G5           C5           G5
Robbed of forgiveness that he could'a gave
        D5             E5
There's no man left to save 


C5   G5   D5    E5 (repeat)
