Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Birch Tree (Russian)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: little birch tree
My grandfather, a Lithuanian, was in the Russian Army in the early 1900s before he immigrated to America. He would always sing this song, especially the chorus, to my mother when she was a young girl She never knew what the words of this song meant as she spoke Lithuanian, not Russian. Years later she heard it on an album of the Red Army Chorus.
