Loving Hanne

  • (Trad)

    I went to church last Sunday
    My love she passed me by
    I could see her love a-changing
    By the roving of her eye (3x)
    I could see her love a-changing
    By the roving of her eye

    Oh my love is fair and clever
    Her hands are neat and small
    And she is quite good-looking
    And that's the best of all (3x)
    And she is quite good-looking
    And that's the best of all

    Oh Hanne loving Hanne
    Pray give to me your hand
    You said if e'er you married
    That I would be the man (3x)
    You said if e'er you married
    That I would be the man

    Oh I'll go down to the river
    When everyone's asleep
    And I'll think on loving Hanne
    And then sit down and weep (3x)
    I'll think on loving Hanne
    And then sit down and weep

    (as sung by The McCalmans)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1984:] The source is forgotten, as so often in oral tradition. It is very popular in both clubs and festivals, in fact a man who frequents these described it as "one of the anthems of folk". (Munro, Revival 118)
