I'LL KISS THE BONNY LASSIE OH! (Air m'fhalluinn bheirinn pog dhi). AKA – "I'll Kiss the Bonnie Lass." Scottish, Reel. E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Fraser): AAB (Köhler). Fraser notes that the reel forms a good medley with "Come Along and Keep Your Promise." Researcher Conor Ward compares the tune with Rev. Luke Donnellan's south Ulster collected "Dalestreet Lasses (The)". The reels have significant melodic and harmonic similarities and may well be cognate.
