Lyrics

The dogs of war are loose again
Cold blows the wind to me
And widows weep for fallen men
for fallen men they weep again
Cold blows the wind to me.

Again the ravens rule the skies
Cold blows the wind to me
With hacking beaks and hungry cries
With hungry cries they wheel the skies
Cold blows the wind to me.

We heard the march of army boots
Cold blows the wind to me
Until they stopped outside Beirut
Outside Beirut we heard them shoot
Cold blows the wind to me.

But then up spoke a colonel bold
The finest in the land
Said: "If orders come to take the town
I cannot obey their command,
I cannot follow them".

So when at last the order came
Cold blows the wind to me
The world knew Eli Geva's name
The world knew Eli Geva's name
stood up against that cold, cold wind
come blow his name to me
