My apologies, Sandra, for messing up your count. Thanks for posting the Tony Miles song.

I was very fond of Ross Ryan recordings back in the day. I wonder what happened to him.

POSTCARD FROM BERLIN
(Ross Ryan)

July winter night after the parting
Drinking until dawn
The wine makes you warm
But your uniform now seems chilled

I was your lover, your echo and brother
But it always seemed strange
How you used to change when your dictator’s name
Came up in conversation

Refrain
And no one wins wars for love or for country
And no one applauds lovers who die
And though winter thaws and summer replaces
The tears on the faces - I still cry
La lye la lye

Instrumental break

Refrain

Where are you now, did you finally crawl home
After you had lost your fight
Perhaps I could write you, but never invite you
I’m sorry, but you changed all that

But I’ll drink a toast to the beds and the hotels
Ladies and gents we once knew
And when I am through, I’ll send to you
A postcard and sign it Berlin

Refrain

Live in the Barossa in 2007:
