Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
A reply garnered from rec.music.folk:
[1999:] I have a friend who had the opportunity to ask Smith about the song, but Smith didn't give a very satisfying answer. It may be that the song did not have a definable inspiration or it may be that Smith just didn't feel up to an explanation at that time or maybe it was something else.
