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 étaient chez moi,
Ils me disent, "Résigne-toi"
Mais je n'ai pas peur
J'ai repris mon âme

J'ai changé cent fois de nom,
J'ai perdu femme et enfants
Mais j'ai tant d'amis
J'ai la France entière

Un vieil homme dans un grenier
Pour la nuit nous a caché
Les Allemands l'ont pris,
Il est mort sans 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...
