DEMOCRATIC HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see "Galway Bay Hornpipe." American, Hornpipe. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was first published by Howe in 1842 as the "Democratic Hornpipe." Francis O'Neill included a version titled "Galway Bay" in his 1903 Music of Ireland collection that was different only in some accidentals and in a shift from 2/4 to cut-time notation. There is no evidence that the tune's origin was in Ireland, and it is well known that O'Neill borrowed and re-titled many tunes from Howe's collections. Pre- and post-Civil War southern whites largely voted for Democrats, but so did most Irish and Irish-American residents of New York and other northern cities, where Democratic Party organizations such as William H. "Boss" Tweed's Tammany Hall cultivated the immigrant vote.
