Thread Name: Lyr Req: Gentle Annie (Stephen Foster)
Subject: RE: Gentle Annie-Stephen Foster lyrics
You know, that song (like some other Stephan Foster songs) is one that is claimed by several cultures as one of their folk songs. Most of us know the Australian version from Eric Bogle and Martin Windham Read, and I've heard it claimed by Ireland, Brittany, Norway and I think others, but until now I don't think I ever heard the original lyrics (or the story).

Thanks so much, Dusterjim.
