In Anne Warner's Traditional American Folk Songs from the Anne & Frank Warner Collection, where an 11 verse version from Frank Proffitt (1959) is printed, the missing line is "And cut him nine gashes in the salt water juice". I can't seem to see my copy of Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still at the moment, but if I can find it I'll check the words there.
