Cornelis Vreeswijk – Balladen Om Flykten lyrics

Om natten gick vi, ingen sеg
Hur vi pе smala stigar drog.
Och nеgra trцttnade och dog
Och dom fick ligga dдare de lеg.
Men vi дare kvar ers excellens,
Fеare vi passera eder grдns?

Vi har ett namn, vi har en kropp
Vi kдnde till en flyktings stig.
Pе natten gick vi I det krig,
Framfцare oss finns vеrt sista hopp
Fцrbarma er herr general
Slдpp fram oss genom dцdensdal.

Vi saknar pass, herr indendent
De brann nдare allting annat brann.
Vеare existens betvivlar man,
Vi lever men vеrt namn дare brдnt.
Fцrbarma er herr intendent,
Vi rеare ej fцare, att detta hдnt.

Fцrlеt oss snдlle, herr soldat
Men om det finns nеn' frihet hдare,
Sе stдll ifrеn dig ditt gevдare,
Och lеt oss komma in, kamrat!
Fцrbarma dig dе herr soldat,
Se branen som behцver mat.

Fцare barnen irrar vilsna kring,
Utan att fatta och fцrstе.
Dom kan vдl ni ta vara pе
Fцare dom har inte gjort nеgonting.
Ers excellens, kom hit och hцare,
Vad tror ni barnen grеter fцare?

Vi flydde till, vеare sista chans,
Ers excellens som kan och vill,
Цppna den grдns vi har kommit till
Vart ska vi annars gе nеgonstans?

Ja, svara oss ers excellens,
Fеare vi passera eder grдns?
Ja, svara oss ers excellens,
Fеare vi passera eder grдns?
