Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Irish (?) Song - Devil & Fiddler
"The Devil Went Down to Dingle" is in the Mudcat Songbook and was written by Rich. This is a direct parody on the Devil went down to Georgia transposed to an Irish setting and is not (unless I'm very much mistaken) the song being looked for here.
There's a song in the DT called "The Old Piper" which looks as if its related to the song I think we're looking for, although obviously the instruments are different.
