HOOP DE DOO DEN DOO [2]. American, Dance Tune (2/4 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Cole): AABB (Kerr). Both Cole and Kerr lable the tune as a jig, meaning a type of dance tune once associated with the banjo rather than an Irish jig. The melody has similarites to "Nigger on the (?)reat" in an anonymous American music manuscript collection dating to 1862, and the first strain is cognate with "Gaston", printed in 1839 in Baltimore by Knauff.
