I'LL HAP YE IN MY PLAIDIE. AKA and see "Come Hap Me with thy Petticoat," "Leith Wynd," "Munlochy Bridge." Scottish, Strathspey. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. See also the related "Sir John Malcolm." Glasgow publisher James Aird printed the tune as "I'll Hap Ye in My Petticoat," which seems to have been too risque a title for 19th century publishers, who changed 'petticoat' to 'plaidie'. See also McGibbon and Craig's "Leith Wynd" from the first half of the 18th century, and the 19th century pipe variant "Munlochy Bridge."
