By the Light of the Moon
BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON. AKA and see "Jockey's Dance." American?, Country Dance (6/8 time). C Major ('A' part) & G Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune (of unknown provenance) appears note-for-note twice in Ed Harding's 1905 collection, under the title and alternate given above, perhaps the result of a printer's or compiler's error.
Printed source: Hardings All Round Collection, 1905; No. 47, p. 14.
