Dan Calder Lyr Req: Don Quixote (Gordon Lightfoot) (13) RE: Don Quixote lyric meaning? 28 Oct 08


Bruce,
I found this meaning on a site devoted to "Hobo Terminology".

Stemming - Panhandling or mooching along the streets.

Fits the context better than any other explanation I've heard.

The site I got that from is: THE ORIGINAL HOBO NICKEL SOCIETY and the URL is http://www.hobonickels.org/terms.htm

Enjoy the music.
Dan
