Commentary to the song “Throw your blues as a cantaloupe rind!..”
There is a poem, which harmonizes with this song and can supplement it, this is written by the veteran of hostilities of our time Igor Girkin (known for the events of the Russian Spring as Igor Strelkov) “The war! what ye know about, comrade?..”:
The war! what ye know about, comrade?
How speedily pillagers go for
Both cows and old women are lying
How bullets and shells scream, how horrible,
Here also comes to mind Robert Rozhdestvensky’s song “For that Young Fellow”.
The song was written for the film “One of Us” (1970).
