John Woods (1761, Bedford, Pennsylvania – December 16, 1816, Brunswick County, Virginia) was a United States Representative from Pennsylvania.

He studied law and was admitted to the bar in Washington County, Pennsylvania in December 1783, in Westmoreland County and Fayette County in 1784, in Allegheny County on December 16, 1788, and in Bedford County in 1791.

He practiced extensively in those counties, and assisted in laying out the city of Pittsburgh in 1784. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Senate in 1797, and was elected as a Federalist to the Fourteenth Congress, holding office from March 4, 1815 to December 16, 1816.

However, owing to illness, he never attended sessions. He died in Brunswick County, Virginia, aged 55, in 1816 while on a journey to the South to regain his health.

John's brother Henry Woods was also a U.S. Representative from Pennsylvania.
