The partisan Lyrics by 16 Horsepower

 

The partisan by 16 Horsepower


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 dirent, "Résigne toi,"
mais je n'ai pas peur;
j'ai repris mon âme.
[The Germans were at my home
They said, "Sign yourself,"
But I am not afraid
I have retaken my soul.]
J'ai changé cent fois de nom,
j'ai perdu femme et enfants
mais j'ai tant d'amis;
j'ai la France entière.
[I've changed names a hundred times
I have lost wife and children
But I have so many friends
I have all of France]
Un vieil homme dans un grenier
pour la nuit nous a caché,
les Allemands l'ont pris;
il est mort sans surprise.
[An old man, in an attic
Hid us for the night
The Germans captured him
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.
