modern folk trio band - the partisan - 2018


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 

there were three of us this morning 
i'm the only one this evening 
but i must go on 
the frontiers are my prison 

an old woman gave us shelter 
kept us hidden in the garret 
then the soldiers came 
she died without a whisper 

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
