Willie's Lyke-Wake

A version of Willie's Lyke-Wake by June Tabor and the Oysterband. The song is an old Scottish ballad and one of the many songs collected in the Child Ballad collection.
Here are the lyrics, at least to this version. There are others, of course. It's a favourite of mine, although I'd really like to know how Annie reacts to her lover faking his death.
