Jenny Jenkins
Composer: Traditional

Jenny Jenkins was performed by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman in the 1990's.

This song is discussed in Southern Mountain Folksongs, W. K. McNeil, 1993. It is thought that the song derives from the game-song Miss Jennia Jones. The earliest recorded version is a text titled Jane Jenkins printed in the Green Mountain Songster in 1823. It's thought that the song was popular during the latter part of the eighteenth century.
