I Lo’e Na a Laddie But Ane

Note: an air, not a jig.

Scottish air possibly from the same root tune as "All Those Endearing Young Charms/My Lodging is on the Cold Ground" (See comments by Nigel Gatherer and others over at https://thesession.org/tunes/6788/)

This ABC transcription is from J. Murray Neil’s "Scots Fiddle Vol. 2:" Here’s part of the descriptive text from The Scots Fiddle Vol. 2:

"The original version of the music appears o be a modification of an Irish tune called ‘My Lodging is on the Cold Ground.’ The tune used [for this transcription] is an adaptation of the slow air in David Glen’s ‘Highland Bagpipe Tutor 1887.’"
