New Song Suggestion

Hey kids,

Here's an idea for a new song to work on, before "Postcards From Italy" becomes a permanent earworm. It's called "Kalyna" and is a traditional Ukrainian song. The version I like comes from a band called Svjata Vatra, who are based in Tallinn and mix the Ukrainian and Estonian folk traditions.

See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsTsdn_DnQM

Chords:

Verse = ||: Am | G | Am | Am :||
Chorus = ||: Am | G | C | F | E | E | Am | Am :||

And the "other" part, for the bagpipe solo and the kalyna-kalyna-kalyna-kalyna-kalyna part is just Am --> G, with subdivisions 3/3/3/3/2/2, all the 3s are Am and 2s are G... yeah, there must be a better way to explain that.

Lyrics:

Oi u luzi kalyna, oi u luzi kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna

Tam stojala divchyna, tam stojala divchyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna

Smachna jak malyna, vyrosla kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna

Ta piznav Ja tu divchynu i zlamav Ja tu kalynu
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna

Oi ne zlysja ne zhurysja molodyi hlopchyna
Tobi bude inscha moloda divchyna
Z garnymy ochyma
Smachna jak malyna
Moloda kalyna!

Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna

Kalyna-Kalyna-Kalyna-Kalyna-Kalyna!, etc, etc.

Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
Kalyna kalyna, chjubaryky chjubchyky kalyna
