HONEYCOMB ROCK, THE. AKA and see "McClellantown Hornpipe." American, Reel (whole time). USA, Pennsylvania. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Bayard says this tune is a form of a British dance tune called "Push about the Jorum (1)," AKA "Rowan Tree (1) (The)," "Lads and Lasses (2)," and "Rattle the Bottles." The Pennsylvania-collected tune takes its name from some form of the associated rhyme:

I went to see the widda', and the widda' wasn't home;
I went to see her daughter, and she gave me honeycomb.

(Bayard, 1944).
