There are some great names to fiddle tunes(and accordion.) and was wondering if we could list a few that you know. Here are some that come to mind.

Smash the Window
Irish Washer Woman
Red Haired Boy

It doesn't matter if they are Reels, Hornpipes, Jigs, Waltz and so on.

There are so many- I sometimes suspect that the same people who name the Avon products are involved in naming fiddle tunes, so colorful, whimsical, graphic, sad, they are.

Cruel Willie

Lament for the Reverend Archie Beaton
A Mighty Pretty Waltz
Tombstone

There's a much revered and occasionally feared expat Scot living here in Oz, a bit south of Sydney. Monty's a fiddler and he used to be a police officer in Queensland. A few years ago there was a corrupt Police Commissioner in Queensland who made a few too many (ahem) financial errors of judgement and was incarcerated in the Brisbane nick. He even had to hand back his knighthood.

Monty composed a rather good 16 bar march entitled Terrence Lewis's Triumphal March To The Gates Of Boggo Road Jail.

Monty doesn't live in Queensland any more.

Sorry Niel, I spelled his name wrong. "I" before "E".
No tune for wife#1 that I know of.
From Wikipedia:
Niel Gow was married twice. His first wife was Margaret Wiseman, and they had five sons and three daughters. His sons William, Andrew (1760), Nathaniel (1763), and John (1764) all followed their father as fiddlers and composers of fiddle music; two of the daughters were Margaret (1759) and Grizel (1761). The youngest son, Daniel (1765), died in infancy; William died in 1791 at age 40, and Andrew died in 1794 at 34. Of Niel's sons, Nathaniel is by far the most well-known and another fine composer of Scottish music, with nearly two hundred tunes to his credit. As a widower, Niel married Margaret Urquhart from Perth in 1768, and they went on to share a happy marriage until she died in 1805, which prompted his composition of one of his most famous tunes: "Niel Gow's Lament for the Death of his Second Wife". Niel died at Inver on 1 March 1807, aged 80.

Pigtown Fling is also known as Wild Horse, and Stoney Point, or sometimes Wild Horse at Stoney Point, and sometimes (not PC) as Ethiopian In The Fuel Supply.
According to Alan Jabbour the correct full title of Rye Straw is Dog Shit A Rye Straw. I think Tommy Jarrell called it Joke On The Puppy.

Commander Crabbe, yes, that could be "Pigeon on the Gate".

Or it could be "Geese in the Bog", "Ducks on the Pond", "Ducks on the Millpond", "Gander in the Pratie Hole", "Chuck in the Bush", "Wild Hog in the Woods", "Yearlings in the Canebrake", "Old Gray Cat on a Tennessee Farm", or "Possum up a Gum Stump".

Just pick an animal, a preposition, and a rural landscape feature and you've got a ready-made name for a fiddle tune.

I have a few untitled pieces of my own floating around, and plenty of personally experienced animal related incidents to draw titles from. Maybe I'll call one of them "Whitetails in the Sweet 'Tater Patch", "Coons in the Cat Dish", or "Turkey Buzzards in the Big Pine Tree".

The Irish slip jig that is sometimes called "O'Farrell's Welcome to Limerick" also has a number of other interesting names.

I remember a tune on an album by Danny Carnahan and Robin Petrie. I can't remember the name of the gentleman whose name appears in the title, but the title was
