"The Devil and the Farmer's Wife"

I've just come across an interesting contrast between two versions of the same song, and I wanted to share them here.

This is the version I am most familiar with:



And, judging from YouTube, this seems to be the more traditional version:



What do you think? I like both versions.

I like them both, but the first one is hilarious! Thanks for sharing it. It's in my iPod now ;)

I've never heard this song before. While I enjoyed both versions, I think the traditional one is funnier. Thanks for posting them both!

My mom was curious about where this song came from, and it occurred to me that others might be curious even though no one else is asking me.

This YouTube video of the song gives a bit of an explanation about its origins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Q8h3bRmS24 But the short answer is, this song is from the USA.
