Some say the Devil's Dead


Some say the deil's deid,
And some say he's hardly
Some say the deil's deid,
And buried in Kirkcaldy.

More say he rose again,
More say he rose again,
More say he rose again,
And joined the English Army.







Some say the Devil's Dead


Some say the deil's deid,
The deil's deid, the deil's deid,
Some say the deil's deid,
And buried in Kirkcaldy.

Some say he'll rise again,
Rise again, rise again,
Some say he'll rise again,
And dance the Hieland Laddie.

Sometimes the last verse is sung as:

Some say he rose again,
Rose again, rose again,
Some say he rose again,
And danced the Hieland Laddie.

In the alternate version the different last verse refers to Bonaparte's escape from Elba. In the Irish version Killarney is substitued for Kirkcaldy and British Army for English Army.
