It varies from country to country. Here in Germany a ballad is sort of a song based on a poem, also a story of a special person or event (as in THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE Smiley ) .
In France a lot of old dance music is labeled as "ballade", also in classical music (mainly piano, remember Richard Clayderman's "Ballade pour Adeline" ? Tortured us to no end 40 years ago. Of course the first thing I learned on the piano back then Smiley ).

Right. It isn't Story Of Cable Hogue.

It says it was a poem, but now:

Did you just try to pull a Titoli on me?

Chopin composed many piano pieces he called 'ballade'.
