Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
I would have expected quite a few responses to this. It has been discussed here before and you might locate that thread. I consider this an excellent song and it has long been a favorite of mine. When I first heard the Dutchman I had not heard of Mudcat and asked other folk who were pretty knowledgable about contemporary music and the best I can remember there is no real story behind the song. Surely something inspired it though.
