In old Sa -van -nah, I said Sa -van -nah, The weath -er there is nice and warm;
The cli -mate's of the south -ern brand, But here's what I don't un -der -stand;
They got a gal there, A pret -ty gal there, Who's cold -er than an arc -tic storm;
Got a heart just like a stone; E -ven ice -men leave her a -lone,
They call her Hard Heart -ed Han -nah, the vamp of Sa -van -nah, The mean -est gal in town;
Leath -er is tough but Han -nah's heart is tough -er; She's a gal who loves to see men suf -fer!
To tease 'em and thrill 'em, To tor -ture and kill 'em, Is her de -light, they say,
I saw her at the sea shore with a great big pan; There was Han -nah pour -ing wa -ter on a drown -ing man,
She's Hard Heart -ed Han -nah, The Vamp of Sa -van -nah G. A.
