Roaring 1920's party style to celebrate the vaccine. Live studio recording. Stay safe everybody!


When the war is over, I’ll invite you for tea
Breadcrumbs for the birds, champagne for you and me
We will go dancing! Diamond and weed
Show our faces to the sun, and people we meet

Oooooo— wishing aloud
Cavalry’s coming / horses in the clouds.

When the war is over, I’ll be California bound
Still young enough to ride the rails, and sleep on the ground
Got a Rose in Los Feliz, a pearl in Venice Beach
I’m the reason for your troubles, you’re my vaccine

Oooooo— wake up the towns
Cavalry’s chargin’ / horses comin’ down

Up up in the clouds
Wild horses on the stairway down
Heaven to the ground
Wild horses on the stairway…

When the war is over I’ll cross mountains sea
Sailin’ through the borders, carnation in my teeth
Got a mum in Ontario, rubies in Paris
On the night train I’ll be riding, to the City of Alchemy

Oooooo— playin’ to the crowds
Cavalry’s thunder / horses on the ground
