C chordC
The Dutchman's not the kind of man
to keep his thumb jammed in the dam
Dm chordDm G chordG
That holds his dreams in
C chordC
But that's a secret that only Margaret knows
C chordC
When Amsterdam is golden
Dm chordDm
Margaret brings him breakfast
G chordG
She believes him
G chordG C chordC
He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC C chordC G chordG C chordC Am chordAm
He's mad as he can be but Margaret only sees that sometimes

Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes



Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Long ago I used to be a young man
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
And dear Margaret remembers that from me

C chordC
The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
His cap and coat are patched with the love
Dm chordDm
That Margaret sewed there
G chordG C chordC
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
C chordC
He watches the tug-boats down canals
Dm chordDm G chordG
An' calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain
C chordC
Till Margaret comes To take him home again
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Through unforgiving streets that trip him though she holds his arm
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name

Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Long ago I used to be a young man
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
And dear Margaret remembers that from me

C chordC
Ohh the windmills swirl the winter wind
She winds his muffler tighter
Dm chordDm
they sit in the kitchen
G chordG C chordC
And a tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
He sees her for a moment calls her name
Dm chordDm G chordG
She makes the bed up singing some old love song
C chordC
She learned it when the tune was very new
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
He hums a line or two they hum together in the night
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out


Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Long ago I used to be a young man
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
And dear Margaret remembers that from me

Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC G chordG Am chordAm
Long ago I used to be a young man
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
And dear Margaret remembers that from me
