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

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...

about

“The scope is both grand and intimate: He feels the weight of the family name amid allusions to prophets and sages, but couches his decision to end the family line amid a resonant drone and bright guitar lines in a way that sounds like a triumph of self-actualization.”

about

Dutch Courage St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis songwriter Andy Puechner grew up obsessed with music: playing his father’s rock albums in the family's rumpus- room, and making a racket playing bass in his High School punk bands.  His talent for melody convinced him to perform solo as Dutch Courage, garnering notice from outlets like the Riverfront Times & Shepherd Express.
He continues to write and record music in his STL City home.
