Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bristol Channel Jamboree (Whip Jamboree)
Just to throw a little more into the equation - Herman Melville in Ch 99 (The Dubloon)of Moby Dick quotes "Hey Jenny! Hey Hey Jennie get your hoecake done" - so this was probably from a seafaring song in the mid to late 19th century. How this would link in with "Whip Jamboree" I'm not sure...
