Thread Name: Origins: The Devil's NINE Questions
Subject: RE: Origins: The Devil's NINE Questions
Now this is interesting. The "bonnie broom" tune that I know is about a sister killing, and has no questions. I do know several question songs, including the devil's nine, but none of them have that tune.

Remember the questions in the songs to the tune of Scarborough Fair? More boy-girl than devil-human, but interesting... more like tasks to be accomplished but asked as questions of the "could you" kind.
