Tune of the Day: Oh! Lassie, Art Thou Sleeping Yet?

Traditional Scottish jig

According to musicologist Samuel Preston Bayard, this tune dates from around 1760 or earlier, and has since been a favorite among both fiddlers and fifers. The title is the first line of poet Robert Burns's song “O Let me in this ae Night”, whose lyric was given final form in 1795.

The more famous tune “The Muckin' O' Geordie's Byre” appears to be a variation of this melody.
