Soundtrack Q & A
Q: There is a melody in the movie played several times in the background. It's a fiddle played when the mother talks about the devil. I believe it is called something like "The Devil's Fiddle" and recorded with Johnny Cash and Travis Tritt (I think) some years ago. But I can't find the name of the tune or any recording anywhere. I hope you can help. Thanks. (from Dorthe Madsen in Denmark)
