about

Barbed wire Sunday was the day in 1961 when the Berlin wall began construction, splitting the city in half. Look for this song on my upcoming album called Potsdamer Platz. Enjoy!

lyrics

One miserable morning in '61
The sky was grey, there was no sun
The GDR forces led the way
On barbed wire Sunday

Soldiers in the streets of Berlin
Lock down the border to keep the people in
Many try to run but meet a loaded gun
Let the terror of the wall begin

Brick by brick the wall was climbing higher
Strangling our dreams of living free
The crows would feed on bodies left to hang
Where they were shot, in a red barbed wire sea

Oooooooh the children cried
Torn away from mother's side
Oooooooh so many died
Desperate to escape from soviet eyes

Oooooooh the children cried
Torn away from mother's side
Oooooooh so many died
Desperate to escape from soviet eyes

Soldiers in the streets of Berlin
Lock down the border to keep the people in
Many try to run but meet Stalin's son
Let the terror of the wall begin
