Freikorps songs

Post by EinsameWacht » 09 Jul 2007 16:56

First of all, as I'm a new user, thanks for the predescending great threads on the Freikorps-topic!

Now to my question: I already know the Freikorps songs of the Deutsche Legion (So zieh'n wir unter fremder Fahne...) and the Brigade Ehrhardt (Kam'rad, reich' mir die Hände...) and i heard there are special songbooks on that topic - does anyone know any other songs of Freikorps units or something about those books?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
EinsameWacht

Hi everyone.

I'm a new member at Axis History Forum and very happy about finding this community. I am dealing with the history of the German Freikors for some time and as my previous speakers I am looking for songs which were sung in the German Freikorps (1918-1930). But the first entry in this thread were made about 6 years ago.

Could anybody help me finding songbooks or other hints about the lyrics from songs?

Best regards!
Philipp

Hi all,

I've been reading with great interest Ernst Von Salomon's book "The outlaws" (Die Geächteten). He at some points refers to songs, and I would like to hear them, but can't find them. They are "song of the pirates of the sea" and "song of the girls of the Baltic sea". Not sure about the titles - I'm giving here translation to english of the french translation in which I read the book. Could anyone help to find the original german titles? And possibly links to the songs themselves.

Many thanks!

Most probably "Wir lieben die Stürme".

I've just read your answer, many thanks!

I've read in a book about freikorps history about a song, could someone help me to find her?

I know that it was originally a navy song, that Panzerlied took the rythm of this song, that the french Foreign Legion has a version of it, which is actually nearly identical to the little part of text I read in my book. It goes:

"The street belongs to whom (descends/goes) in her
The street belongs to the flag of our (Freikorps)
Around us hatred
Around us the dogmas we knock down..."

In case it might be a usefull info, the FFL version us entitled "Képi blanc" and alternatively "la rue appartient" (white képi / the street belongs).

Hmm... This song is estimated to be from 1930 (earliest known publishing 1933) :?

Do you have the German lyrics and which book is in question? There was a Freikorps tribute song "Es stehet im Osten die eiserne Schar" (Panzerwagenlied), which was sang to that melody and which then inspired the new Panzerwagenlied, "Ob's stürmt..." (see http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=21189). But as far as I was able to find out, it comes from the Third Reich period (meaning it's not a Freikorps song, but a Third Reich tribute to a Freikorps unit); but there are no such lyrics (those you quoted) in "Es stehet im Osten".

The "song of the pirates of the sea" Von Salomon recalls might be in german "Störtebekers Seeräuberlied", since the same author refers to it in another book (Nähe Geschiste).
( https://www.volksliederarchiv.de/hakenk ... stahlhelm/ ) If I got the german text right, it is said to be an early, Ehrhardt brigade version of "Hakenkreuz am Stahlhelm". But there is no reference to the pirate Störtebeker in the text, because the version Salomon writes about is even earlier and had only the first verse in common with the one here.
