Helen Creighton collected a version of that latter song in Nova Scotia, which she published with the title, 'Courting is a Pleasure'. Very different tune, though, from the Loving Hannah tune I'm familiar with.

To my mind, they are different songs, although there was obviously some borrowing going on.
