William Sidney Mount
OFF WITH YOUR JACKET. AKA and see "Pigtown Fling," "Stoney Point (1)." American, Reel. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is a variant of the popular and widely known tune family that includes "Buffalo Breakdown," "Hop Along Sally," "Kelton's Reel," "Old Dad," "Old Mother Goodwin" (Pa.), "Stoney Point (1)", "Stony Point Reel" (Pa. title, 1866), "Warm Stuff," "Wild Horse," "Wild Horses at Stony Point."
