One reads from an American fiddler's source:  " A 'jenny' is a mule. An archaic-style fiddle tune learned by Monticello, south-central Ky., fiddler Clyde Davenport (b. 1921) from his father, Will Davenport, who himself had it from one Will Phipps. Phipps was an old timer (born in 1812) from Rock Creek, Tennessee, who was supposed to have been buried with his fiddle in his coffin."


Note the antecedent, as generation passes a tune to the next, as it should be.
