Micahael Robinson and others have written in about the tune title
"Jenny Dang the Weaver". A great title! It is also a great song, about
an obnoxious weaver who courts a woman named Jenny. Jenny turns out to be
more than a match for him, and she "dang" him. To ding someone is to
turn them down flatly.
I recorded a version of this song with the band Dun Creagan some
years ago. Tom McKean brought the song to the band, but I'm not sure
where he got it. I can ask him if anyone is interested.
