I keep my ballad texts in a constant state of flux, as I constantly add/subtract details and flourishes, but according to the manuscript copies I occasionally make for my notes, the biggest offenders in my repertoire are Lang Johnnie More (approx. 44 verses), Lambkin (~37), Matthie Groves (~29), Young Andrew (~26), Jock o the Brinesyland (~24), Edom o Gordon (~20), and Jock the Leg and the Merry Merchant (~20). Many more in the 15–20 verse category.
