0 - Original notes read: "Grandmother's son went to the Volga. He drove horses to a watering-place. He lost the horses. An old man told him that his horses had been picked up by the wind as high as the clouds and lowered onto a glade in the forest. It is a ballad. Ballads are very popular with the Mordovia people. Recorded in 1961 in the village of 'Red Settlement'." [Source: Tape Notes]
