Can someone give me any information on singer / guitarist John Marshall who features on the 'Moses go Down' episode of 'All you need is Love' tv series from te 1970s? He sings the following song (probably called "Willie")
Dear Frau Contistadorff
I'm the one you heard tell off
They call me a bastard in the lines.
I'm only first lieutenant but
I'm the one who gives the orders
That sends men home wounded and dying.
And every night I must sit and
write letters such as this
To the wives and the mothers of my men.
And now I must tell you that
you're boy won't be home again.
Willie was a fine man,quiet and dependable,
Wounded always got a smile.
A smile perhaps knowing,
that on their way back home,
they'ed maybe drop in and say 'Hi.'
But as we were advancing one day,
the grenade had to come his way, and
we never saw him again.
I don't know how I go on
breaking hearts with this pen.
I AM UNABLE TO FIND ANY INFO ONLINE RE ALBUMS OR OTHER SONGS OR HIS ORIGIN. ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED.
