SANDY IS MY ONLY LOVE (Alastair m' annsachd). Scottish, Slow Air (3/4 time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "This is one of the editor's family stock, as sung by the original compiler, to which it is so difficult to attach incident; but the melody is often fine where the individuals may be obscure, a circumstance which, for the most part, simplifies both the style and the sentiments" (Fraser).
