Summary - This song is a woman's love song. She sits alone thinking of Donald who has made her sad. Her parents told her she was silly to love a sailor, but even if she got a wealthy man, Donald is special to her. It is over a year since he sailed away. She carries locks of his hair in her pocket and has a framed picture of him.
