Split rows

Hi all,
I need a simple bin/sh script

ab1  gegege swgdeyedg
ac2 jxjjxjxjxxjxjx
ae4 xjxjxj zhzhzh ahahs
af5 sjsjsjs ssjsjsjsj sjsjsj
ag6 shshshshs sjjssj
shhshshs has to return:
ROW ab1
ROW ac2
ROW ad3
ROW ae4

In other words: "ROW " + the first world of the first 4 lines

If you need only a solution for your problem:
awk 'NR<5{print "ROW" FS $1}' file

If this is a homework and you are limited to sh please post your problem on Homework & Coursework Questions - The UNIX and Linux Forums

for file in `cat "file.txt" | grep -v "shhshshs" | awk '{print $1}'`
echo ROW $file
