"Annan Water is not such a well-known ballad. I have altered and simplified it considerably. The original verses may be found tucked inconspicuously away in an appendix of volume 4 of the Child Ballads. The tune used is an adaption of The brisk young lively lad, found in The Folk Song Journals."

So, can anyone with access to Child vol. 4 dig out those 'original verses' for me?
