Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Barleycorn (Songwainers)
Subject: RE: Barleycorn/Songwainers
Ed Pellow, I'm no Bible expert, but it's possible that the text of "We Plough the Fields etc" is based on text in the gospel of Matthew. I only suggest this because the song "All Good Gifts" from the musical "Godspell" uses those words and I know that Godspell was based on Matthew. Kind of a reach, but I'm sure someone will know.
