You may also see it rendered "o' me", which makes it clearer that it is indicating the pronunciation of the phrase "of me," as Daniel explained below. – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Dec 5 '13 at 17:19

The 'a' is just a representation of the word "of" as it might be pronounced. In other words, it's just "of me".
