Subject: RE: Folklore: Singing about hell, the devil, evil
Yonder comes the devil
With his pitchfork and shovel
He was digging up potatoes
On the turnpike road
But the road it was so hard
He couldn't get 'em up
So away ran the devil
With his tail cocked up

I recorded this in the 1970's from an elderly English Gypsy called Joe Jones.
