[Haskell-cafe] A Question about withFile

I wrote a simple test program as

main = do
    withFile "a.txt" ReadMode (\h -> do
        c <- hGetContents h
        putStrLn c)

then I got my expected results: I'm a.txt

but if I changed to

main = do
      c <- withFile "a.txt" ReadMode hGetContents
      putStrLn c

I got just a empty line.

Where am I wrong?
