From a 1910 recording of the great melodeon player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xED-8N7oNz8 A nice simple tune, classified here as a hornpipe for convenience’s sake. After all he follows it up with the Dill Pickle Rag, so I think for the Buck Dance anything must have gone, to paraphrase Cole Porter.
