The Dutchman lyrics and Guitar chords, Michael Peter Smith.Liam Clancy made a great job of this song. Also sang by Celtic Thunder.

[G]The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That [Am]holds his dreams in
But [D]that's a secret that only [G]Margaret knows
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast
[Am]She believes him
[D]He thinks the tulips bloom be[G]neath the snow
He`s mad as [Em]he can [Am]be but [D]Margaret only [G]sees that sometimes
Some[Em]times she [Am]sees her unborn [D]children in his [G]eyes

CHO: Let us [Em]go to the [Am]banks [D]of the [Em]ocean
Where the [Am]walls rise a[D]bove the Zuider [G]zee
Long a[Em]go, I [Am]used to [D]be a [G]young man
And dear [Em]Mar[Am]garet re[D]members that for [G]me

 

The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
His cap and coat are patched with the love
That Margaret sewed in [there]
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
He watches [the] tug boats down canals
And calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain
'Til [Then] Margaret comes to take him home again
Through unforgiving streets
That trick him though she holds his arm
Sometimes he thinks that he's alone and calls her name

The windmills whirl the winter in
[The winters whirl the windmills 'round]
She winds his muffler tighter,
They sit in the kitchen
Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
He sees her for a moment, calls her name
She makes the bed up humming [singing] some old love song
A song Margaret learned when the tune [it] was very new
He hums a line or two, they hum [sing] together in the night [dark]
The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out.

Key Of D Major
[D]The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That [Em]holds his dreams in
But [A]that's a secret that only [D]Margaret knows
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast
[Em]She believes him
[A]He thinks the tulips bloom be[D]neath the snow
He`s mad as [Bm]he can [Em]be but [A]Margaret only [D]sees that sometimes
Some[Bm]times she [Em]sees her unborn [A]children in his [D]eyes

CHO: Let us [Bm]go to the [Em]banks [A]of the [Bm]ocean
Where the [Em]walls rise a[A]bove the Zuider [D]zee
Long a[Bm]go, I [Em]used to [A]be a [D]young man
And dear [Bm]Mar[Em]garet re[A]members that for [D]me.

Key Of C Major
[C]The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That [Dm]holds his dreams in
But [G]that's a secret that only [C]Margaret knows
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast
[Dm]She believes him
[G]He thinks the tulips bloom be[C]neath the snow
He`s mad as [Am]he can [Dm]be but [G]Margaret only [C]sees that sometimes
Some[Am]times she [Dm]sees her unborn [G]children in his [C]eyes

CHO: Let us [Am]go to the [Dm]banks [G]of the [Am]ocean
Where the [Dm]walls rise a[G]bove the Zuider [C]zee
Long a[Am]go, I [Dm]used to [G]be a [C]young man
And dear [Am]Mar[Dm]garet re[G]members that for [C]me
