Peggy Quotes

Seeger's greatest asset is her uncanny ability to dissolve the gap between artist and audience. She belongs to a long line of musicians who sunder the meat from the bone effortlessly, rendering the unpalatable visible. Listening and watching her trawl through past and present, it was easy to see where Ani di Franco, Utah Philips and Bruce Springsteen drew from the well. - Siobhan Long, Irish Times

Peggy Quotes 2

The beautiful thing about this album is the way it feels both contemporary and classic simultaneously. 'Everything Changes' will fit in perfectly with Seeger's previous work but will also introduce a whole new generation to a way of songwriting that isn't driven by radio minutes or a killer chorus, more by storytelling and getting a message to all those awake enough to listen.

Loving Hannah

LOVING HANNAH
traditional USA - learned from Jean Ritchie?

I went to church on Sunday
My true love passed me by
I knew her mind was changing
By the roving of her eye.
    By the roving of her eye,
    By the roving of her eye,
    I knew her mind was changing
    By the roving of her eye.

O Hannah, loving Hannah,
Come give to me your hand,
You said if ever you’d marry
That I would be your man, (etc)

Now you have broke your promise
Go home with who you please,
While my poor heart is aching,
Here lying at your ease. (etc)

My Hannah’s tall and handsome,
Her hands are long and small,
I know she is good-natured
And that’s the best of all. (etc)

I’ll go down to the river
When everyone’s asleep,
I’ll think of loving Hannah
And then sit down and weep. (etc)
