BLACK JACK DAVY [1]. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Oklahoma. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). One part. "Black Jack Davy" is the name of a ballad, a variant of "The Gypsy Laddie" (Child No. 200), which has been collected in the United States in the Appalachians and Midwest. However, as a fiddle tune (collected in the Midwest) only the title appears to be related, while the music does not seem to be based on any ballad air.

Source for notated version: Ace Davis (Lincoln County, Oklahoma) [Thede].

Printed source: Thede (The Fiddle Book), 1967; p. 51.
