bflat Lyr Req: zuider zee (The Dutchman) (14) RE: Lyr Req: zuider zee 17 Apr 02


This song, The Dutchman, is about enduring love. In the song, Margaret is the loving care giver to her husband who appears to be suffering from madness or dementia or Alzhemier's disease, one or the other and of the moments when there is a glimpse of recognition to their history. I've heard all mentioned recordings i.e., Clancy, Goodman and Smith. I've been to a live Smith concert twice when the entire audience sang the chorus along with Michael Smith. It was pure magic. My song circle sings it nearly every week since I first introduced them to The Dutchman. We just love the poetry and music. I might add it is not an easy song to sing, but well worth the learning.
