PADDY ON THE HANDCAR [1]. AKA and see: "Bunch of Keys (2)," "Paddy on the Turnpike (1)," "Paddy on the Turnpike (2)." American, Irish; Reel. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Silberberg): AABB (Phillips, Sweet). USA; N.C. This tune is probably Irish in origin. An untitled duple-time melody in Book 3 of the large c. 1883 music manuscript collection (entered in this index, the TTA, as "Polka (11)") is similar in the opening measure or two of both strains, but differs melodically after that.
