Tom Russell

Capo at 3rd fret.


G(320033) G2 E7 G2(320003)


   The Dutchman is not the kind of man

   to keep his thumb jambed in a dam that holds his dreams in.

   But that's a secret only Margaret knows.  |

   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 a-bove the Zuider Zee.

   Long a-go, I used to be a young man.

   Now dear Margaret re-members that for me. (Intro)
