The Allan Water is a river in central Scotland. An English ballad begins On the banks of Allan Water and relates the death of a miller's daughter whose soldier lover proves untrue. This version was popularised by Charles Edward Horn in his comic opera, Rich and Poor (1812).

 

Horn, *21 June 1786, †21 October 1849) was an English composer and singer. He achieved prominence with his portrayal of Caspar in the English version of Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischütz in 1824.
