15 different versions of the classic Russian song “I Shall Leave For The Field Tonight With My Horse”

– – – – –

I Shall Leave For The Field Tonight With My Horse
there is silence in the fields in the night
when we go together only me and my horse
only he and me

There are many stars in the field in the night
No one you may see in the field in the night
Only me and my horse
walking in the field

I will ride my horse
please, my horse, carry me through the field!
through the endless field
my lovely field

Let me take an eye to the east
where the field gives birth to the sunrise
well – the clusterberry light! Red Sunrise!
I wonder – whether this place exist or not!

Oh my field – streams, the fires of the far villages
Golden rye and curly line
I’m in love with you, my Russia, in love!

it’s going to be a good year for bread-birth
anything was in our life and anything will be passed
well, sing the Golden Rye, sing the curly line!
sing about how much I’m in love with Russia…

sing the Golden Rye, sing the curly line
we will go together to the fields…
