Poems and Songs of Vladimir Vysotsky. A Ballad of Fighting.

Commentary to “A Song about the First Lines”.

As the epigraph to this song, there can be used the words of Porphyry Ivanov, peace be upon him, from his article “The life of man depends on Nature...”: “It would not be a bad thing for man to look into himself, to understand his own nature, and then act outside, being firmly aware of what he needs.”

The song was written in 1970.
