Adieu, My Lovely Nancy

Adieu My Lovely Nancy, a familiar theme, was collected by Max Hunter from Mrs Bertha Lauderdale of Fayetteville, Arkansas, in 1959.  Verse 6 is from a Sussex version collected in 1898 by Mrs K Lee. The Illustration is a detail of Jemmy’s Farewell by John Hodges Benwell, engraved by Bartolozzi, 1780’s, from the British Museum.
