This is the real Sailor's Hornpipe. The tune is quite different from what most people think of as "Sailor's Hornpipe". Research courtesy of PD Info.

The tune is in the public domain in the United States.

Transcription to tablature for mandolin is my own original work, as is formatting for the World Wide Web. The copyright statement below applies to my work (including comments) and not to the tune itself.
