/C* E* Am
When they poured a-cross the border
/C* E* Am
I was cautioned to sur-render,
 /CG/G2/4
this I could not do;     
 FF/CE/AmAm/AmAm
   I took my gun and van-ished.                  

C* E* Am
I have changed my name so often,
C* E* Am
I've lost my wife and children
 CGG
but I have many fri-ends,    
 FFCE/AmAm/AmAm
    and some of them are with me.                

C* E* Am
An old woman gave us shelter,
C* E* Am
kept us hidden in the garret,
 CGG
then the soldiers came;   
 FFCEAmAm/AmAm
     she died without a whis-per.              

C* E* Am
There were three of us this morning Hier encor nous ?tions troi
C* E* Am
I'm the only one this evening Il ne reste plu que moi
 CGG
but I must go on;                                Et je tourne en rond
 FFCEAmAm/AmAm
   the fron-tiers are my pri-son.                 Dans la prison des frontieres

C* E* Am
Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing, La vent passe sur les tombles
C* E* Am
through the graves the wind is blowing, La libert? reviendra
 CGG
freedom soon will come;                          Oh nous oubliera!
 FFCE/AmAm/AmAm
   then we'll come from the shad-ows            Nous retrerons dans l'ombre.

C* E* Am
Les Alle-mands ?-taient chez moi, (The Germans were at my home
C* E* Am
ons m'a dit: "Re-signe toi," They said, "Sign yourself,"
 CGG
mais je n'ai pas peur;                      But I am not afraid
 FFCE/AmAm/AmAm
    j'ai repris mon ?r-me.                  I have retaken my weapon.

C* E Am
J'ai chan-g? cent fois de nom, I have changed names a hundred times
C* E* Am
j'ai per-du femme et en-fants I have lost wife and children
 CGG
mais j'ai tant d'a-mis;                     But I have so many friends
 FCEAmAm/AmAm
     j'ai la France en-ti?re.                  I have all of France

C* E* Am
Un vieil homme dans un gre-nier An old man, in an attic
C* E* Am
pour la nuit nous a ca-ch?s, Hid us for the night
 CGG
les Alle-mands l'ont prisent;                     The Germans captured him
 FFCEAmAm/AmAm
    il est mort sans surpri-se.                  He died without surprise.)

C* E* Am
Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
C* E* Am
through the graves the wind is blowing,
 CGG
freedom soon will come;     
F F C E Am Am/Am Am (appregio)
then we'll come from the shad-ows.
