HUNKY DORY. American, Reel. USA, Ky. A Major (Greene): D Major (Phillips). AEae or Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The late fiddler Alva Greene (of Sandy Hook, eastern Ky.) learned the melody from his uncle, Jimmy Greene. The word 'hunky-dory' dates from the mid-19th century and means 'satisfactory' or 'fine' (Mark Wilson). There appears to be no relation to Abe Holzman's 1900 cakewalk called "Hunky Dory."
