EARL OF JURA, THE. AKA and see "Gille Bàn (An)," "Fair Haired Lad (The)." Scottish, Slow Air. D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Angus Grant identifies the tune as the air to an old song said to have been composed by a lass who was in love with the Earl, a Campbell, although her love was unrequited. It begins:

Ma's ann 'gam mhealladh, a ghaoil, a bha thu
Ma's ann 'gam mhealladh as deigh do gheallaidh
'Se luaidh do mholaidh ni mi gu brath
Ma's ann 'gam mhealladh, a ghaoil, a bha thu
