N.....[2] IN THE WOODPILE [2]. AKA and see "Miss McLeod's Reel (1)/Miss MacLeod's Reel (1)." American, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. A southwestern Pa. floating title, and therefore once in widespread usage in Pennsylvania and many parts of the United States, offensive as it is nowadays. The north Georgia band The Skillet Lickers recorded a version of the tune usually known as "Pigtown Fling," "Wild Horse" or "Stoney Point (1)" under this title; all are cognates of the Scottish "Miss McLeod's Reel (1)."
