I tried again and found the Copper Kettle song (Why can't the search engine learn that it is me and that I can't spell!) and the moonshiner song.
It seems that the Copper Kettle song was written in 1953 for a folk opera called "Go Lightly Stranger". What exactly is a Folk Opera? I guess the Beggar's (or its later incarnation as The Three Penny) opera is an example.
The other interesting thing is that the moonshiner song was recorded by Dylan. I don't recall every hearing that version. I sort-of gave up on him when he "pluged in". Did he do that song with electronic instruments?
