Anyone have the chords to this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hymn_of_the_Soviet_Union


Soyuz nerushimy respublik svobodnykh
Splotila naveki velikaya Rus'!
Da zdravstvuyet sozdanny voley narodov
Yediny, moguchy Sovetsky Soyuz!

    CHORUS
    Slavsya, Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
    Druzhby narodov nadyozhny oplot,
    Znamya sovetskoye, znamya narodnoye
    Pust' ot pobedy k pobede vedyot!

Skvoz' grozy siyalo nam solntse svobody,
I Lenin veliky nam put' ozaril,
Nas vyrastil Stalin — na vernost' narodu,
Na trud i na podvigi nas vdokhnovil!

    CHORUS
    Slavsya, Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
    Schast'ya narodov nadyozhny oplot,
    Znamya sovetskoye, znamya narodnoye
    Pust' ot pobedy k pobede vedyot!

My armiyu nashu rastili v srazhen'yakh,
Zakhvatchikov podlykh s dorogi smetyom!
My v bitvakh reshayem sud'bu pokoleniy,
My k slave Otchiznu svoyu povedyom!

    CHORUS
    Slavsya Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
    Slavy narodov nadyozhny oplot,
    Znamya sovetskoye, znamya narodnoye
    Pust' ot pobedy k pobede vedyot!

Version of Paul Robeson

    United forever in friendship and labor,
    Our mighty republics will ever endure.
    The great Soviet Union will live through the ages.
    The dream of the people their fortress secure.

       CHORUS:
       Long live our Soviet Motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
       Long live our People, united and free.
       Strong in our friendship tried by fire. Long may our crimson flag inspire,
       Shining in glory for all men to see.

    Through days dark and stormy where Great Lenin led us
    Our eyes saw the bright sun of freedom above
    and Stalin our Leader with faith in the People,
    Inspired us to build up the land that we love.

       CHORUS:
       Long live our Soviet Motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
       Long live our People, united and free.
       Strong in our friendship tried by fire. Long may our crimson flag inspire,
       Shining in glory for all men to see.

    We fought for the future, destroyed the invader,
    and brought to our homeland the Laurels of Fame.
    Our glory will live in the memory of nations
    and all generations will honour her name.

       CHORUS:
       Long live our Soviet Motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
       Long live our People, united and free.
       Strong in our friendship tried by fire. Long may our crimson flag inspire,
       Shining in glory for all men to see.

I take it that this was the anthem that used to be played when athletes from the USSR ascended the podium to receive their medals.

A better tune than most, and, probably, better than its successor. Who wrote the music?

Ozymandias comes to mind!

Russia again use the same anthem tune as the old Soviet one, probably with different words, as anthems go this is one of the best.

A previous thread on national anthems gave a link to http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Cavern/1026/Anthem.htm where mp3 files for a number of national anthems can be played/saved.

The one there for "USSR" is lovely, but I can't tell if it's the one wanted. The mp3 has a bit of "walking bass" that should make it fairly easily to identify basic chords.

(Note that the default filename for the USSR is "typoed" as URSS.mp3)

Here's the site where I found the "Russian" National Anthem, properly ponderous. BUT this is listed as the USSR national anthem. Before the revolution Imperial Russia used another tune, which an be heard towards the very end of the 1812 Overture, as, I believe, this music was composed to celebrate a French victory over the Russians. Hard to imagine the French beating anyone, these days where they simply quake in appeasement at any slight, unless it is hords of scraming Muslims, irate because two of their kids died when they ventured into an electrical sub station where they had no business, and electrocuted themselves, while evading the gendarmes.

"Hard to imagine the French beating anyone"

Where did that come from? More neoconservative nonsense; the real issue is they didn't sing the US-Israeli axis' tune. Louis XIV's wars were against almost all of europe; Napoleon conquered all the way to Moscow; Prussian won in 1870's but France returned the favor in 1918 at Versailles. France lost in 1940 but reconqured by 1945.

Only vaguely recalled, but record notes on an old LP I believe made reference to the use of Tschaikovsky's March Slav as the basis for a Russian national anthem. A slightly variant version of March Slav is incorporated as a part, near the ending, of the later 1812 Overture. The separate composition that was the basis for the anthem is less remembered because the cannons don't go off in it, at least in the usual performances of the shorter piece.(?)

As indicated, this is from a long-ago rememberance of something that wasn't all that interesting at the time...and may be entirely off-base.

The melody to which you refer (in the 1812 overture) is the old Anthem of the Tsar which represents the Tsar's armies, in the same fashion that Le Marseilles represents Napoleon's armies--
A contemporary interpolation of this sort is the inclusion of the Soviet Anthem in the Pet Shop Boys verion of the Village People's "Go West", which sounds so much like it belongs there that it is a bit surprising to check the original and discover that it is not--

We sang the old anthem in church today. Opening line in English, in this particular lyric, of which there are many, is "God The Omnipotent." According to the hymnal, the composer was Alexi Lvov.

I was wondering if this "Lvov" was whom L'viv (formerly, under Russia and the USSR L'vov), the capital of Ukraine, was named?

The czarist anthem was "Lord God Protect the Czar". It was written by one of the classical composers, I don't remember who, perhaps Glinka. If needful, I have an mp3 I can email you; made from an Edison cylinder found in the winter Palace.
