They poured across the borders
I was cautioned to surrender
But I am not afraid
I took my gun and vanished

I have changed my name so often
I have lost my wife and children
But I have many friends
All the oppressed of the world

An old woman gave us shelter
Kept us hidden in the attic
But then the fascists came
She died without a whisper

There were three of us this morning
And I'm the only one this ev'ning
But I must go on
Frontiers are my prison

Oh the winds, the wind is blowing
Thru the graves the wind is blowing
Freedom soon will come!
Then we'll come from the shadow.


from Dawn of the Reds, released September 14, 2008
Written by Anna Marly and Emmanuel d'Astier de la Vigerie (1943).
