Bronner (1987) says "Ann Green" is a version of the tune usually known as "Wake Up Susan," "Hell on the Wabash," and "Hell on the Potomac," which Jabbour (in American Fiddle Tunes) has ultimately related to the Irish "Mason's Apron". The second part of this tune is quite similar to the 'Hell' tunes, while the first part is what Bayard called a "foreshortened," "condensed" or "telescoped" strain of the same tunes. The tune is played on the fiddle in ADae.
