OLD WIFE HAUTS/HAUNTS AFTER ME, THE. AKA - Scottish, Air (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Robert Burns seems to have intended this air to be the vehicle for his song "My Peggy's Face, My Peggy's Form" in Johnson's Scots Musical Museum, but the melody was deemed unsuitable and another was substituted.
