MY APPIE. AKA and see "Eppie Adair." Scottish, Air (3/8 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The melody is the air to a song contributed by Robert Burns to Johnson's Scots Musical Museum, vol. 3 (1788, No. 281, p. 290). The lyric in the Museum goes:

'An' O, my Eppie My Jewel, my Eppie!
Wha wad na be happy Wi' Eppie Adair!

By love, and by beauty, By law, and by duty;
I swear to be true to my Epie Adair!
By love, and by beauty, By law, and by duty;
I swear to be true to my Eppie Adair.'

A' pleasure exile me,
Dishonour defile me,
If e'er I beguile thee,
My Eppie Adair!.
