When they poured across the border
I was cautioned to surrender,
This I could not do;
I took my gun and vanished.
I have changed my name so often,
I've lost my wife and children
But I have many friends,
And some of them are with me.
An old woman gave us shelter,
Kept us hidden in the garret,
Then the soldiers came;
She died without a whisper.
There were three of us this morning
I'm the only one this evening
But I must go on;
The frontiers are my prison.
Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
Through the graves the wind is blowing,
Freedom soon will come;
Then we'll come from the shadows.
Les Allemands e'taient chez moi, [The Germans were at my home
Ils me dirent, "Signe toi," They said, "Sign yourself,"
Mais je n'ai pas peur; But I am not afraid
J'ai repris mon arme. I have retaken my weapon.
J'ai change' cent fois de nom, I have changed names a hundred times
J'ai perdu femme et enfants I have lost wife and children
Mais j'ai tant d'amis; But I have so many friends
J'ai la France entie`re. I have all of France
Un vieil homme dans un grenier An old man, in an attic
Pour la nuit nous a cache', Hid us for the night
Les Allemands l'ont pris; The Germans captured him
Il est mort sans surprise. He died without surprise.]
Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
Through the graves the wind is blowing,
Freedom soon will come;
Then we'll come from the shadows.
