Patterson wrote:

The turn strain of this melody seems a modal variant of the second section of "My Love She's But a Lassie Yet," which circulated in American fiddle and fife collections. The Shaker tune originated at Harvard in 1830.

Analogue: "My Love She's But a Lassie Yet" in The American Fifer, p 31
