Some songs with lyrics:
-Old Lady and the Devil (aka The Devil and the Farmer)
-They Said My Lord Was A Devil (aka Warfare or My Warfare Will Soon Be Over)
-Tying a Knot in the Devil's Tail

Not sure if you're looking for only songs with lyrics, but instrumental songs include:
-The Devil's Dream
-Up Jumped the Devil
-Devil On a Stump

Also, a song which I don't think is a trad. song but which I like:
-Devil On My Shoulder by Hylo Brown
-The Devil by Hoyt Axton

To find lots of ballads about the devil, hell, etc, go to the Fresno State search page (click) and type in your desires search term.
