Subject:        Early Myth

I've been trying to remember the details of a myth about a hero who
agrees to carry an old man across a river on his shoulders, but when he
gets to the other side, the old man refuses to get off his back.  Does
anyone recognize this story enough to supply names of the mythical
participants?
