Lyrics depict mourning for Willie Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln at the point of Abraham Lincoln's death. Lyrics reference health of Abraham and Mary Lincoln at Willie's death. Although the song is dedicated to the memory of Willie, the cover image is taken from a Mathew Brady photograph of Lincoln looking through a photo album with his youngest son Tad.
