Hi, I've been scouring the Internet to find the sheet music for "dark eyes" and keep coming up empty. I've been inspired by this recording of Yoska Gabor from the turn of the last century playing it  and I must learn this! All the free copies I've found (very few) are for a jazz version of that piece and they sound terrible, so I'd be very grateful if anyone can point me to where I can get the version Yoska Gabor played. I don't mind at all paying for it, just needs to be the right arrangement.

You may have more success searching for  Les Yeux Noir, or Yeux Noir which of course is Dark Eyes in French Guitar tab seems easier to find but search also for mandolin Tab for that music. If you find it you may not choose to use the Tab (but it tells you which fingers to put where) but tabs are often published with standard notation above the Tab .... Good luck

PS Mandolin tunes E A D G  same as the violin
