Nanny That Leeves Next Door

"Nanny That Leeves Next Door", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.

This cheerful song is about a shy man courting the girl next door. "For she took my heart when sittin' and knittin', the time that I was smokin' and spittin'."
