Yonder Comes The Devil

Yonder comes the devil

With his pitch-fork and shovel

He was digging up potatoes in the turnpike road.

And the road was so hard and he couldn’t get ’em up,

So yonder run the Devil with his tail cocked up.

[Traditional English folk song of which portions were found written in a ship’s log, 1855]
