Default Burns songs for smallpipes

It's that time of year when Burns suppers are coming up & I want to see if anyone has ideas or experience with pipe-singing Burns songs. I have Tim Cummings's book "how can I keep from singing" which has a couple in it but, as usual, I want more!!
I hold a small informal Burns night here at home, so it's not a huge deal, but am interested to expand my song repertoir.
suggestions? Experiences?

thanks

A Man's a Man For a'That .. Quick Google will find ya the notes and lyrics. Would go great with a guitar and singer w/the smallpipes.

I believe that you can find an online pdf version of the 1793 edition of "A Select Collection of Original Scottish Airs", to which Burns contributed many songs, and which was published in his lifetime. Awesome stuff, I have a copy.
