Nice article Mick,

The De Witt text was published in Ballads and Songs collected by the Missouri Folk-lore Society by Henry Marvin Belden, Missouri Folklore Society - 1973

Elopments now are all the go,
They set the ladies crazy;
Now then, ladies all, beware,
And look out for Gypsy Davy.

I don't have that edition. It appears in a google book search tho.
