ADAM BUCKHAN, O! AKA - "Adam Buckham oh!" English, Air (4/4 time). England, Northumberland. F Major (Bell): D Major (Stokoe & Bruce). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bruce and Stokoe (Northubmrian Minstrelsy, 1882) print lyrics, beginning:

Its doon the Lang Stairs, And strite alang the Close,
All in Baker's Entry, Adam Buckham knows.
O Adam Buckham, O, O Adam Buckham, O;
O Adam Buckham, O, Wiv his bow legs.

Although uncredited in Northumbrian Minstrelsy, the air was obtained from the music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician John Bell (1783-1864), as "Adam Buckham oh!". Bell also collected the words to the song.
