On the Road to Petersburg..............................Arr. by Serge Jaroff
Chorus--On the road to Petersburg, a little bell is tinkling.

come no more to thee." Chorus--On the road to Petersburg, a little bell is tinkling.
Beneath the Snow My Russia Lies...............................Folk Song
Beneath the snow my Russia lies. Wailing winds sing to her their scid sonps. The roads are lost in whirling snowdrifts. O thou blind and awful forcé, thou who bringest death in thy wake.

The Tipsy Peasant.......................................Arr. by C. Shvedoff
"Why, you tipsy fellow, must you drink and carouse, instead of serving your mistress
"It was only a small glass. A peasant must drink."
"But, my good man, if you behave yourself, you will wear good clothes and never want for tea and sugar."
"It sounds good. But what's a Russian peasant to do without his glass Leave me alone, friend."

Long years of exile cannot dim our memory of the homeland. Fondly we sing the oíd songs and await in faith the hour of our return.
The Two Guitars (Gypsy Song)..........................Arr. by C. Shvedoff
The strumming of guitars beyond the garden wall--memories of youth. Is it you, my love Ref rain--Ah, again, again, and yet again! The moonlit night--my soul steeped in thoughts of thee. The ache, the ache--is it my heart, my head Let me drink on--today, tomorrow, the whole week throughl
Those Evening Beixs....................................Arr. by Serge Jaroff
Those evening bells, those eyeníng bells, Those joyous hours are passed away,
How many a tale tneír music tells! And many a heart that then was gay,
Of youth and home and that sweet time Within the tomb now darkly dwells,
When last I heard their soothing chime. And hears no more those evening bells.
And so 'twill be when I am gone,
That tuneful peal will still ring on,
While other bards shall walk these dells
And sing your praise, sweet evening bells. --Thomas Moore.
Song of the Don Cossacks......................................Gretchaninoff
Dust whirls over the road. Now and then a shot--the Don Cossacks are returning after a plucky raid. All are in high spirits, save one. Why so glum, my young daredevil Is your purse empty, perchance
