Subject: RE: origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meanings?
I love the song but I have always believed it to be about a married couple, Margaret...and the Dutchman. He has some sort of ptsd, I've assumed about WW2. Isn't it funny how we all see this differently. I would bet my life it's a love song though, romatically speaking as opposed to a brother and sister relationship.
