So many traditional songs have stories of seafaring men who leave their women behind to go off and have their adventures....and their women are expected to be waiting at the harbor the day they return......I wrote this one to suggest that women oftentimes have more important things to do than sit at the harbor with a basket of apples waiting for some smelly sailor to come home! I sing it with La Compagnie and with Jean Marie & The Lads.
