NOMADMan Req: All God's Critters Got a Place in the Choir (44) RE: All God's Creatures 02 Apr 06

Hi Folks,

It's fairly obvious that we are talking about two different songs that just happen to use a similar, but not identical phrase. No lyrics are posted on the Preston/Beachwood website, but were there any I think it would be clear that it is a different song.

Note also that the copyright date for the Beachwood song is 1983, while the Staines Folk Legacy recording was issued in 1979. There is no environmental slant to Staines's lyrics. Also, it is not true that Staines did not claim authorship. See the last page of the booklet accompanying the Folk-Legacy recording.

Why would anyone think these were the same song?
