The original melody for this song was created by two Russian composers in 1926 from a Russian Gypsy Folk song as a "lost love" song, "On The Long Road." Gene Raskin (from New York) created a new set of lyrics in the 1960s as "Old Friends" ballad, "Those Were The Days," to which he copyrighted the lyrics as "made public with credits given to him."
