Sarah2 Chords Req: The Dutchman (Michael Smith) (14) RE: chords the dutchman 04 Feb 01

THE DUTCHMAN (Michael Smith)

[G]The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That [Am]holds his dreams in
But [D]that's a secret that only [G]Margaret knows
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast
[Am]She believes him
[D]He thinks the tulips bloom be[G]neath the snow
He`s mad as [Em]he can [Am]be but [D]Margaret only [G]sees that sometimes
Some[Em]times she [Am]sees her unborn [D]children in his [G]eyes

CHO: Let us [Em]go to the [Am]banks [D]of the [Em]ocean
Where the [Am]walls rise a[D]bove the Zuider [G]zee
Long a[Em]go, I [Am]used to [D]be a [G]young man
And dear [Em]Mar[Am]garet re[D]members that for [G]me


On guitar, the G is played, to avoid going into a catatonic state, as a full G for a measure, then lift your little finger from the high G (on your high E string), use your index finger to play an E on the D string for a measure, then move your index finger to play an F# on the high E string, then back to the E on the D string. Back to a normal G; repeat as long as needed.
