Subject: RE: origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meaning
I SWEAR I heard the story surrounding this song before - I think it was an interview on WUMB. I can't remember enough to pass it on, and it would just be my opinion of what he said anyway. WUMB probably has it archived, but you have to be a member to get to it.

Thing is, it probably wasn't about real people, but something inspired it, and I find interesting to wonder what made Michael Smith want to write the song and what put the image of the couple in his head.
