Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears under the "One-Eyed Fiddler" title in the music manuscripts of the Hardy family of Dorset, England, whose most famous member was the novelist Thomas Hardy (1840-1928). It is a version of the well-known "Manchester Hornpipe (1)," but the "One-Eyed" title seems to have been unique to the Hardy family.
