about

Dutch Courage St. Louis, Missouri

Dutch Courage is the alter-ego of St. Louis based songwriter Andy Puechner, who has been writing and performing his bedroom- folk & pop stylings since the summer of 2003. The music is centered around Puechner's voice & fingerstyle guitar work- melodic hooks are simultaneously barbed and gentle, with lyrics somehow both bitter and sweet, optimistic & wry.

Folk & Pop without fences.

Track Name: Another First Son
As the first son of another first son
I'm bound by an oath not to be the last one
But I broke it
Pushed down the river our backs to the sea
They had to decide what to do about me
But I don't care

I lie awake in brambles and weeds
And I hear the sound of the hooves of their steeds
Til they're gone

I pushed a path past a prophet in robes
He told me he read in his oracle bones
Of my fortune
I'd crack the stones of another man's cairn
An omen the ancients had said would ring out
Like a warning

I lie awake in brambles and weeds
And I hear the sound of the hooves of their steeds
Til they're gone
Track Name: Saint George's Day
So now let's throw a party for Saint George's Day
It's after the harvest now we don't owe corvée
Only once chance for freedom from the Lords and Magnates
So let's have a party now, to Saint George we pray

They don't treat us right we don't have to stay
Only one day a year to do what we may
So let's have a party on Saint George's Day
C'mon Pa, put down the scythe
Things'll never be the same
C'mon Ma, gather the kids
Gotta eat 'fore it rains
C'mon brother, put down your tools
Can't afford to be late
C'mon sister, pull on your shoes
No time to complain

So now let's throw a party for Saint George's Day
It's after the harvest now we don't owe corvée
Only once chance for freedom from the Lords and Magnates
So let's have a party now, to Saint George we pray

They don't treat us right we don't have to stay
Only one day a year to do what we may
So let's have a party on Saint George's Day
C'mon Pa, put down the scythe
Though I know you hate change
C'mon Ma, gather the kids
Gotta leave this estate
C'mon brother, put down your tools
If you want a fair wage
C'mon sister, pull on your shoes
No time to be tame

So now let's throw a party for Saint George's Day
It's after the harvest now we don't owe corvée
Only once chance for freedom from the Lords and Magnates
So let's have a party now, to Saint George we pray...
