Uke-Song: "VLAD PUTIN'S BLOGGER", upgrade of an American folk-ballad


ORIGINAL SONG: "The Frozen Logger", an American folksong of the tall-tale variety, was written by James Stevens in 1928 and published in 1949. It has been recorded by The Weavers in 1951, and subsequently by many other artists including Johnny Cash and Oscar Brand. 
For those interested, the original song is shown in ukulele-friendly form at the bottom of the post. BTW, if you play guitar or other stringed instrument, it should be easy to transpose these charts to the key of your choice (or send me a request or complaint in the Comments section).
PARODY COMPOSED:  Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, February 2019.

WORDPLAY LINK: A related post showing the song-lyrics only (without the chord indications) has just become available on our sister blog "Daily Illustrated Nonsense".  Click HERE.

FURTHER INFORMATION: A presidential quote from January 2019, in reference to the suspected perpetrators indicted by the Mueller probe.
 "Among the 34 people, many of them were bloggers from Moscow or people who had nothing to do with me, had nothing to do with what they were talking about or there were people who got caught telling stories or lying … I think it's a terrible thing (that has) happened to this country, because this investigation is a witch hunt."
