NOTES

Dirck Gulick, one of the area's original Dutch settlers, purchased this property in 1727 and built this home in 1752.

——————————

On another note, this lyric has a bit of controversy in its pronunciation. The "-tch" is pretty punctual and can easily be interpreted as "Ducktown," which, inconveniently enough, is a neighborhood in Atlantic City. While online lyric sites almost exclusively list this one as "Dutchtown", a similar synchronized Garden State Stomp video was shared in 2020 which optioned for the Duck version.

There are no lyrics to accompany the original vinyl record, and Dave's not around to clear the air anymore, so we dug deep and found an obscure folk music magazine called Sing Out!, which would feature the lyrics to a handful of songs in each issue. As luck would have it, the August-October 1993 (Vol. 28, no. 2) issue featured the Garden State Stomp, and after cross referencing the magazine which was published while Dave was still alive, Dutchtown it is.
