American instances of this song are rarer, but some years ago I found this one in Horace Kephart, "Our Southern Highlanders," NY, Macmillan, 1913 and Rev Ed 1922, 1941, pp 81-2.
In the chapter "Bear Hunt in the Smokies," Kephart recounts,
"Then we discovered that there was musical talent, of a sort, in Little John. He cut a pigeon-wing, twirled around with an imaginary banjo, and sang in a quaint minor:
Did you ever see the devil
With his pitchfork and ladle,
And his old iron shovel
And his old gourd head?
O, I will go to meetin'
An' I will go to meetin'
Yes, I will go to meetin'
In an old tin pan."
I have looked for evidence that there may be related lyrics to the fiddle tune "Up Jumped the Devil" but so far have come up dry.
