MY FAVOURITE, IF I COULD GET THEE. AKA - "Stu mo luaidh na'm faighinn thu." Scottish, Slow Air (3/4 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "This is one of the airs which bear similitude to one of our standard Scottish melodies, 'In Winter, When the Rain Rain'd Cauld.' How an air, with words so ancient as those attached to this one, should have existed in the Highlands, and no person import it, can only be accounted for by its being a real native, and new-modeled by Oswald or Macgibbon" (Fraser).
