the dutchman lyrics

Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee. He watches tugboats down canals And calls out to them when he thinks he knows the captain, 'til Margaret comes to take him home again, Through unforgiving streets that trip him though he holds her arm. G C Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam. But that's a secret only Margaret knows. Now dear Margaret re-members that for me. The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes, His cap and coat are patched with the love That Margaret sewed there.

the dutchman lyrics

The winters whirl the windmills 'round She winds his muffler tighter And they sit in the kitchen. His hat and coat are patched with the love that Margaret sewed him. The song is about an elderly couple living in Amsterdam, Margaret and the title character the unnamed Dutchman is senile, and Margaret cares for him with a sadness over what has happened to him over the years. He sees her for a moment, calls her name, She makes his bed up singing some old love song, She learned it when the tune was very new. He's mad as he can be, but Margaret only sees that sometimes, Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes.

G C Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew. She makes the bed up, humming some old love song. G Till Margaret comes C To take him home again Dm G C C C B Am A Through unforgiving streets that trip him, though she holds his arm, F G C Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name. Sometimes he thinks that he's alone and calls her name. Beautiful lyrics - beautiful song. Long ago, I used to be a young man And dear Margaret remembers that for me.

the dutchman lyrics

She remembers special moments with glimpses of happier times, yet there is a certain sadness she feels over what has become of him over the years. Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam. He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow. The windmills whirl the winter in She winds his muffler tighter And they sit in the kitchen. The Dutchman's not the kind of man To keep his thumb jammed in a dam That holds his dreams in But that's a secret only Margaret know But when Amsterdam is golden In the morning, Margaret brings him breakfast She believes him He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow He's mad as he can be But Margaret only sees that sometimes Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man Now dear Margaret remembers that for me Now the Dutchman still wears wooden shoes His cap and coats all patched with the love Margaret sewed him Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam As he watches tugboats down canals Calls out to them when he thinks He knows the captain 'Til Margaret comes to take him home again Through unforgiving streets That trip him though he holds her arm Sometimes he thinks he's alone and calls her name Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man Now dear Margaret remembers that for me Now the winter whirls the windmills in She winds his muffler tighter They sit in the kitchen Tea with whiskey keeps away the dew He sees her for a moment He calls her name out, she makes the bed up Humming some old love song She learned it when the tune was very new He hums a line or two They hum together in the night The Dutchman falls asleep Then Margaret blows the candles out Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man Now dear Margaret remembers that for me Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man Now dear Margaret remembers that for me. Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew. The dutchman still wears wooden shoes His cap and his coat are patched with love That margaret sewed in Sometimes he thinks he's still in rotterdam He watches tug boats down canals And calls out to them When he thinks he knows the captain Til margaret comes to take him home again Through unforgiving streets A tripping though she holds his arm.

The Dutchman lyrics by Jerry Jeff Walker

the dutchman lyrics

He has become senile over the years but Margaret's love for him is undying. They sit in the kitchen. It's a story of unconditional love. Some blonde asked The wind must have blown him in But an old Dutchman offered him a drink What will it be, whisky, rum or gin? The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out. At the time Smith wrote the song, he had never visited the Netherlands. The Dutchman is not the kind of man Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam That holds his dreams in That's a secret that only Margaret knows When Amsterdam is golden in the summer Margaret brings him breakfast, she believes him He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow He's mad as he can be, Margaret only sees that sometimes Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee Long ago, I used to be a young man Dear Margaret remembers that for me The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes And his cap and coat are patched with the love Margaret sewed there Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam He watches the tug-boats down canals An' calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain Margaret comes to take him home again Through unforgiving streets that trip him, though she holds his arm Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee Long ago, I used to be a young man And dear Margaret remembers that for me The winters whirl the windmills 'round She winds his muffler tighter, they sit in the kitchen Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew He sees her for a moment, he calls her name She makes the bed up singing some old love song She learned it when the song was very new He hums a line or two, they hum together in the dark The Dutchman falls asleep, Margaret blows the candles out Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee Long ago, I used to be a young man And dear Margaret remembers that for me Let us go to the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee Long ago, I used to be a young man And dear Margaret remembers that for me.
