Another version is "The Devils Nine Questions". It's definitely dangerous and supernatural. It ends with

You have answered my questions nine,
Sing 99 & 90,
You're one of God's, you're not of mine,
And you are the weaver's bonny.

Burl Ives did it and it's also in Bronson in a collected traditional version.
