Linda, the "Deeper Down" song about well digging is called "Song of Artesian Water." It's a Banjo Patterson song with a tune written by Cathie O'Sullivan (and subsequently folk processed almost to the point of being food processed). I'm hoping to put it out on CD within the next year, if all goes well.

The other song is called "Applesauce" and it's by Jan Harmon. Nick Apollonio and Kristin Tescher recorded it on their More Maine Coast Music album.

What those two songs have in common (other than lots of syllables) is that they are enormously fun to sing.
