I Love My Jean
#1
Music 2 
On this day (26th March) in 1834, Jean Armour, wife of the poet Robert Burns, died. Burns wrote a few songs for her, including I Love My Jean which was written to the tune of Miss Admiral Gordon's Strathspey. The tune is still well known today, usually given the first line of the song as a title:

I Love My Jean 

Of a' the airts the wind can blaw,  
I dearly like the West; 
For there the bony Lassie lives, 
The Lassie I lo'e best: 
There's wild-woods grow, and rivers row, 
And mony a hill between; 
But day and night my fancy's flight 
Is ever wi' my Jean. 

I see her in the dewy flowers, 
I see her sweet and fair; 
I hear her in the tunefu' birds, 
I hear her charm the air: 
There's not a bony flower that springs 
By fountain, shaw, or green; 
There's not a bony bird that sings 
But minds me o' my Jean.
