Anyway, I can't find another period ballad that mentions it-- At the end of ev're seven years, they pay a tithe to Hell-- but I did find a likely allusion to it in the rather famous modern Irish ballad (attributed to Bobby Sands, a name persons my age may remember), Back Home In Derry. To wit:
I cursed them to hell, as our bow fought the swill
Our ship danced like moths on the firelight
Wild horses rode high as the devil passed by
Taking souls into Hades by twilight light
And thus, the folk process. Interesting to pull up an allusion to mythic Faerie and Hell and slavery in a song tying modern political activism to that of the 19th century. Layers of complexity there. Very cool.
