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)
