Oh Annan Waters wondrous deep,
And my love Annie’s wondrous bonny.
I’m loathe that she should wet her feet,
because I love her best of any.
Go saddle for me the bonny grey mare.
Go saddle her soon and make her ready.
For I must cross that stream tonight,
Or never more I’ll see my lady.
And woe betide you Annan Water
At night you are a gloomy river
And over you I’ll build a bridge
The never more true love may sever
Oh Boatman come put off your boat
Put off your boat for Gold and money
For I must cross that stream tonight
Or never more I’ll see my Annie
The sides are steep, the water’s deep
From bank to brae the waters pouring
And your bonny grey mare she sweats for fear
She stands to hear the waters’ roaring
And he has tried to swim that stream
And he swam on both strong and steady
But the river was broad and strength did fail
And he never saw his bonny lady
Oh woe betide the willow wand
Oh woe betide the bush of briar
For it broke beneath her true love’s hands
When strength did fail and limbs did tire
