Why aye man

“There’s plenty Deutschmarks here to earn
and german tarts are wunderschoen
german beer is chemical-free
germany’s alreet with me”

Apart from making friends in germany, Mark Knopfler’s latest album will appeal to his fans. Laid back guitar picking, perfect for this time of the year. The album’s called “The Ragpieker’s Dream”.
