Post 220: 'MISS HANNAH'

Here's a tune to which I have been introduced. It is Miss Hannah, composed in about 1929 by Don Redman and John Nesbit. I have put it in my mini filofax collection.
It's another one I can recommend on the grounds that it has a pleasant melody (especially the Chorus - no need to play the Verse if it doesn't appeal) and a very simple chord structure. It's a standard 32-bar song, with an A - A - B - A structure.

All in all, it could hardly be simpler.

There were various 'Hannah' songs at about that time - Hard-Hearted Hannah, Miss Hannah From Savannah and Oh Miss Hannah. They are all different and all worth playing.
