Vladimir Vysotsky. We Have Gone.

Commentary to the song “Life Was Rushing”.

Here are the words from this song:

When it was brought too close to the mob low,
With might and main I stood to guard the hillmen.

The hillmen mean the Muslims, and the coming of the defender of the believers was promised by the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

There is a good work about the hillmen, it is Rasul Gamzatov’s “My Dagestan”.

The song was written in 1978.
