This verse is from "Apples and Potatoes" on June Tabor's album "Against the Streams":
Yonder comes the devil with his pitchfork and shovel,
He was digging up potatoes on the turnkipe road.
But the road it was so hard, he couldn't get 'em up,
So away ran the devil with his tail cocked up
From the singing of Joe Jones, gypsy, St Mary Cray, Kent
- Tune: God Killed the Devil
From the playing of Lemmie Brazil, gypsy, Gloucester
- Who's that a-climbing up my old apple tree?
Bridget, my darling, I'm longing to see.
I'm not stealing apples, o, I can explain:
The wind bloweth high and knocked 'em down
So I'm puttig 'em back again.
From the singing of Jasper Smith, gypsy, Epsom, Surrey
