Intro (Capo at III or X): F, F6, Fmaj7, F6 x2

    F          F6      Fmaj7   F6
The Dutchman's not the kind of man
   F        F6           Fmaj7  F6       Gm11
To keep his thumb jammed in the dam that holds his dreams in
C                            F          F6      Fmaj7   F6
But that's a secret only Margaret knows
     F     F6     Fmaj7 F6      F
When Amsterdam is golden in the morning
F6      Fmaj7   F6           Gm11
Margaret brings him breakfast and she believes him
C                          F     F6     Fmaj7 F6
He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow
            Gm11           Bb            F                   Gm11
He's mad as he can be, but Margaret only sees that sometimes
              Bb              F
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes

       Gm11   Bb           F
Let us go the banks of the ocean
          Gm11        Bb             F
Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee
      Gm11  Bb           F        Gm11
Long ago, I used to be a young man
         Bb         F
But dear Margaret remembers that for me

F, F6, Fmaj7, F6 x2

(Repeat):
The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
His cap and coat are patched with the love that Margaret sewn in
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
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 the unforgiving streets that trip him though she holds his arm
Sometimes he thinks that he's alone and calls her name

Let us go the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
But dear Margaret remembers that for me

Windmills whirl the winter in
She winds his muffler tighter they sit in the kitchen
Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
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 hums a line or two, they hum together in the night
The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out

Let us go the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
But dear Margaret remembers that for me
