Thread Name: Lyr Req: Loving Hannah (sung by Jean Ritchie)
Subject: RE: Lyrics/Richie-Loving Hannah
Since Jean Ritchie's 1950s visit the song has become widely sung, and is now labelled a 'traditional Scots song' - see Ailie Munro's book The Democratic Muse. At least Jeannie Robertson remembered where she got it from!
