Words: a rough translation from Google translate, with a little editing from me:

In the wild steppes Transbaikalia,
Where royut gold in the mountains
Tramp, fate curse
Taschylsya with sumo shoulders.

It smocks thin,
And a lot of different patches
Shapchonka it prisoner
And gray prison robe.

Tramp Baikal suitable
Fishing boat takes.
And a sad song starts -
Home about something sings:

"He left a young wife
And leave small children
Now I go at random,
God knows I'll see if she was! "

Tramp Baikal moved
Towards - darling mother.
"Oh, hello, oh, hello, mother,
How healthy is my father and my brother? "

"Your father had long been in the grave,
Syroyu earth closed.
And your brother had long been in Siberia
Long irons thunders. "

Come on, let's go, my son,
Come on in our native hut,
Wife there for her husband misses
And crying kids crowd. "

No, I'm not Russian, but am learning the language...My family converted to Ukrainian Orthodox in 2008, so, Ukrainian is very similar to Russian. I am enjoying transliterating Russian songs, so I can sing them in Russian, without the trouble of trying to read the Russian letters and sing at the same time. I did this with 3 so far,and am working on another, and plan to do a Russian Christmas Carol after that.

Glad you like it. I love Russian and Ukrainian singing, too, and am trying to learn to sing it, too. I just love this song.
