ROCK CREEK GIRLS. AKA and see "Buck Creek Girl," "Old Dad," "Pigtown Fling," "Stoney Point," "Wild Horse." American, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAAABB'. "Rock Creek Girls" is fiddler Isham Monday's (1879-1964) version of "Buck Creek Girl," the upland Kentucky title for the reel widely known in various parts of the South and MidWest as "Old Dad," "Pigtown Fling," "Stoney Point," "Wild Horse" and other titles. The 'Rock Creek' title seems unique to Monday, however.
