Johnhenry'shammer Origins: Lyrics involving aprons (26) Origins: Lyrics involving aprons 06 Feb 07

I've been listening to and learning folk music for a while now and a lot of times I'll come across a lyric like these from Dink's Song, "One I wore my apron low/I couldn't keep you from my door/Now my apron is up to my chin/You see my door but you won't come in." I've heard something like that in a few other songs too (Careless Love comes to mind) but I've never really thought much of it until now. I guess I'm just wondering what the hell that means and where it comes from. Thanks.
