There are tons of stories of the devil in southern folklore. One that I was told by my grandfather was that the devil would hide among goat herds in
the form of a large billy(male goat). When a prospective sinner would come near, the devil would stand up on it's hind legs and follow him until he
came to a crossroads. If the sinner would turn to confront the devil before he reached the crossroads, the devil would take his soul right then and
there. If not, then the sinner had best get to church as soon as possible and confess his sins before passing those crossroads again.
