Volunteer army singer's manuscript is on display

After the victory of the war, Ma Fuyao has repeatedly returned to his hometown in the Northeast, but never mentioned the story of himself and this song. His hometown father has never known that he is the author of the volunteer war song.

Talking about this lyric, Ma Fu said with great enthusiasm: "At that time, I didn't know how to write lyrics, nor did I write words for singing. After the singer sang, some people said that I became a celebrity, a lyricist, and I shook my head. Denial. I am only a regular soldier of the Volunteers and a political worker in the People’s Army."

To this day, Ma Fuyao still insisted: "Although I wrote it, it reflects the voice of the troops and the officers at that time. It is also the voice of the people of the country at that time. Even if I don't write, others will write it, not how high I am. Talent."

Ma Fu shakes the warrior to tell the creation process

In September 2016, the People’s Liberation Army’s “Volunteer Wars Song” even wrote a letter to Ma Fu. The letter stated:

"Respecting the elders of Ma, more than 60 years ago, your "volunteer war songs" written in an impassioned manner inspired the volunteers of the Volunteers to fight heroically. More than 60 years later, the melody of "War of the Volunteers" still resounded throughout the country, inspiring generation after generation. Later, people fought bravely. As a descendant of the "Volunteer Wars", we felt glorious because of the "War of the Volunteers."

Although we have not experienced the era of war, but in the thick history, in the song of the "Volunteer Wars", we feel that you and your comrades were so passionate and bloody, and felt a generation of war songs. A strong will that is high-spirited and not afraid of sacrifice. It is in this spirit of leadership and inspiration that the company has achieved one after another and created one after another. ”

Subsequently, Ma Fu gave a letter to the five together and said:

"Five companies have a good tradition of tradition and a glorious battle. From the past to the present, the five companies have always been good! Five companies have always stood in the first place! When I was as young as you, it was given five times." The tempering and nourishment of my growth, Wulian is an important starting point for my life.

When the unit leader came to visit, he mentioned the issue of the spirit of war songs and the culture of war songs. This concept is very good. The war song is the song of the volunteer army, the song of the hero, once the strongest voice of that era. Today, with the great development of culture and prosperity, we should further explore the new ideological connotation of war songs. Let the war song culture nourish our cadres and soldiers to grow up healthily, let the spirit of the war songs further carry forward, and continue to inspire us to move forward. ”


"Chinese People's Volunteers Wars"

Ma Fu's lyrics

Strong and arrogant across the Yalu River

Baoping peace for the motherland is Baojiaxiang

Chinese children and children unite together

Resist US Aid Korea defeats American Emperor Ambition Wolf

(After the adaptation is added) My dad has been to the Korean battlefield.

In order to defend the motherland in order to defend the hometown

Defeat the US imperialists to defend peace

军亮地军歌 mighty and majestic

Our ancestors went to North Korea to fight

Heroic fighting is the backbone of the nation

The Yalu River flows quietly

The bright military song echoes in the ear
