The Devil's Hoofprints

Album: The Singing Postman (1965)
  • Although Allan Smethurst recorded in the Norfolk dialect, not all his songs were about the region. "The Devil's Hoofprints" is about an incident that occurred in Devon in 1855 during a particularly severe winter when mysterious hoofprints in numerous West Country locations led the superstitious amongst the populace to claim that Old Nick himself had made them. >>
