Dig A Little Deeper In The Well
Doc & Merle Watson; Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs; The Oak Ridge Boys; more 1979
  (Mountain 3)   Mark Clausing

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Dig a little deeper in the well, boys
Dig a little deeper in the well
If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well
Dig a little deeper in the well boys
Dig a little deeper in the well
If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around you know
When you meet that corner, curlique
You're gonna scoot back and go
Couple up and when you do, do the right & left thru
Dixie style make an ocean wave, take a little peek you do
Trade the wave, eight chain thru..talk this line
Dig a little deeper in the well, boys
Dig a little deeper in the well

When you meet that corner, swing that girl
You're gonna promenade so well
Dig a little deeper in the well boys
Dig a little deeper in the well
If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well


MIDDLE BREAK    A2

Circle left
My daddy used to tell me not to be fooled by what you see
If you want to get to the heart of things
You've gotta look way down deep

Walk all around that corner, come back a dopaso
It's the partner left, corner right & the partner left you know
Head ladies center teacup chain - talk this line
Dig a little deeper in the well, boys
Dig a little deeper in the well
If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well
Dig a little deeper in the well boys
Dig a little deeper in the well

All 8 to the middle for a cowboy yell
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well


CLOSER    A2

Circle left
A good man needs a good woman
She's the rock that will make him strong
And she'll be there to lean on
When the whole world's goin' wrong

Walk all around that corner, come back a dopaso
It's the partner left, corner right & the partner left you know
Head ladies center teacup chain - talk this line
Dig a little deeper in the well, boys
Dig a little deeper in the well
If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well
Dig a little deeper in the well boys
Dig a little deeper in the well

All 8 to the middle for a cowboy yell
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well


TAG

If you wanna good cool drink of water
You've gotta dig a little deeper in the well
