Songs of Other Authors Performed by Vladimir Vysotsky.

On the Road.Translated by Vyacheslav Chistyakov.

Written by Ivan Turgenev.

Gray is the morning, the morning is misty,
Mournful are grasslands all covered with snow.
Out of your wish ye will get thinkings wispy,
Images, feelings ye lost long ago.

Ye will remember the passionate speeches,
Glances ye longed for and keenly desired,
Greetings at meetings and sealing of breaches,
Sounds of voices, the voice ye admired.

Ye will recall that strange smile at the parting,
Lots of the things that are sweet and remote,
While listening to the train wheels soft debating,
Watching the wide sky, while ye’re on the road.

1843.
