Hannah from Butte, Montana
DESCRIPTION: "I've got a girl named Hannah, From Butte Montana, The reason I don't love her, She's dead, gol darn her! She lived on the Untrodden hills of Butte. None cared to love her And none dared to shoot."
EARLIEST DATE: 1928 (Shay-Barroom)
KEYWORDS: love death
FOUND IN: US
REFERENCES (1 citation):
Shay-Barroom, p. 145, "Hannah" (1 short text)
NOTES: Shay's seems to be the only text of this, so reconstruction may not be possible, but his text (apart from being short) appears damaged. There needs to be a missing word in the lines "She lived on the [???] Untrodden hills of Butte." Is there a word that would explain why no one else would either love her or shoot her?
