about

The Blues Preachers
Last year The Blues Preachers released 'Dry Long So', which was heralded as one of the best blues and roots records of the decade!
Samuel Fell / Rhythms May 2010.

This latest release 'Dead Catz Can Bounce' as well as having their own unique versions of traditional depression era songs goes one step further and includes original songs for social justice and the search for truth and meaning in this great age of misinformation.

'Divine Justice Coming Down' is an honest and confronting account of the Global Financial Crisis. We see many parallels here between the GFC and the 1929 Great Depression.

'The Free Train Agreement' about the things in life which are free and uncontrolled by governments and corporations. Get On Board.

'Arrivals & Departures' paints a beautiful picture of the cycle of human life. People arriving and departing the planet.

'Dead Catz Can Bounce' Rich Man Poor Man.
Losing your money's bad but losing your soul is worse.

The Blues Preachers have secured a reputation as one of the best acoustic blues and roots acts in the country.

Track Name: Divine Justice Coming Down
Divine Justice Coming Down:

They got Yanks
They got tanks
Can bring a country down
Start a war, in through the back door
And then get out of town

They got banks
Swiss francs
They got Slush funds too
Managed funds, Hedge funds
What’s a poor boy to do

Long sell
Short sell
The wheels of fortune say
Going up, going down,
Make money either way

I can’t help but feel somehow
When I look around
I can’t help but feel somehow
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
----------------------------------------------------------------

Good debt
Bad debt
The market prophets fall
Sell the house, sell the car
Gotta meet that margin call

Banker
Oil tanker
Pirates on the sea
Wing a few, kill a few
Be back in time for tea

We got trousers
And Blouses
And corporate pinafores
Reptiles in power
All along these corridors

I can’t help but feel somehow
When I look around
I can’t help but feel somehow
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
----------------------------------------------------------------

Gold is
The way to go
900 bucks an ounce
Jump in boy and get your share
Beware the dead cat bounce

Bankers
Wankers
They’re all the F’ing same
Gamble with your money
And pay you back in pain

I can’t help but feel somehow
When I look around
I can’t help but feel somehow
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down, coming down
It’s DIVINE JUSTICE coming down
---------------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: The Free Train Agreement
The Free Train Agreement

Throw your arms way up high,
Grab me momma and make me fly
Mother and father brother sister too,
tell you what we’re gonna do.

Chorus
ALL ABOARD
Get on board .... The Free Train get on board

White man black man yellow and brown,
it don’t matter just come on down
Brother John and Captain Bluetongue,
everybody got to get along.

Chorus
ALL ABOARD
Get on board .... The Free Train get on board

Well all you people of every nation,
there’s a train a coming to your station.
Well you don’t need no luggage and you don’t need to pack, Don’t need no Ticket to ride on this track.

Lookey here and lookey there,
everybody wants to be treated fair
Build a house and buy a car,
live life in a cookie jar.

Chorus
ALL ABOARD
Get on board .... The Free Train get on board

They’ll blow you up and blow you down,
turn you in and turn you ‘round
What we need is a new old way,
and everybody sails through judgment day.

Chorus
ALL ABOARD
Get on board .... The Free Train get on board

This train is bound for Glory This Train.
This Train is now terminating ….. All out or change.
Track Name: Arrivals And Departures
Arrivals & Departures

Come first light another soul is born
Through Screams of pain & joy
into this world were thrown.
Arrivals & Departures
& Postcards in between.
Life as we know it is only a dream.

Well you come out of the womb
Unto your mothers breast
Tears fill the room as you enter the nest
Someone else is dyin’ their body laid to rest
Sun rises in the east, Sunsets in the west

Well you crawl around in wonder
At all the colours of the rainbow
No worry to ponder
And no place to go
You take your first steps & utter your first word
Your as fresh as a daisy
As free as a bird

CHORUS
Arrivals & departures
And postcards in between
You & I are passengers
And life my friend
is only a dream

Well you done all your schoolin’
Hard workin’ times ahead
Providin’ for your family
Learnin’ to make bread
Take some snapshots at the milestones
Instead of just getting by
We’re all learnin’ to live
& preparing to die

So you done raised your family
& there all grown
They follow in your footsteps
From the seeds you have sown
Well they look after you &
Its your turn to rest
Sun rises in the east & sets in the west

CHORUS
Arrivals & departures
And postcards in between
You & I are passengers
And life my friend
is only a dream.

When your dearly beloved
board that final train
Memories come floodin through to ease the pain
Your grieving & weeping
Tears roll down your face
Were all on our own journey & they’ve
Left this place

When the hand of God
Strikes your last chord &
Your being wheeled through some hospital ward
Your day will come when your done & you head towards the sky
When it’s the end of the game
& its your time to die

CHORUS
Arrivals & departures
And postcards in between
You & I are passengers
And life my friend
is only a dream.

Dead Catz Can Bounce

V1.
You can talk about the market and your Next Big Bet
I'm just trying to stay clean and off the Internet
We save our money and we save our pay
Looking forward to the big holiday
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

V2.
You up one day you down the next
I know brother John I feel quite perplexed
You were the head of a big corporation
Now I'm all alone at the railway station
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

CHORUS:
Dead cats can bounce
The first come last and the last come first
Dead cats can bounce
Losing your body's bad but losing your soul is worse
It don't matter what you do
Jesu got a place for you
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

MIDDLE SECTION:
Beyond the torsion field
Beyond the left and right
Beyond winners and losers
Beyond the black and white
There's a struggle going on
Beyond the pale
Beyond life and death
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

V3.
Look at me I'm a millionaire
Yea well I'm still wearing last years underwear
I been driving round without a care
Yea well I aint got no bus fare
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

V4.
I got money and a beautiful wife
I cut my wrists with a kitchen knife
I built a house on big wig hill
I can't pay my phone bill
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce

CHORUS:
Dead cats can bounce
The first come last and the last come first
Dead cats can bounce
Losing your body's bad but losing your soul is worse
It don't matter what you do
Jesu got a place for you
This is the one that counts
DEAD CATZ can bounce
