Do anybody else think the song "Denver" by Randy Sparks (NCM) and "Love Me, I'm a Liberal" by Phil Ochs have very similar melody? In the verses, the melody to the first three lines are almost the same, the only difference is in the last line. Just in case my hearing failed.

It's been years since I heard the Phil Ochs, but the melody for "Denver" is from the trad. "Acres of Clams".

I believe "Love Me, I'm A Liberal" uses the traditional tune from "Rosin the Bow", and is public domain.

Woodie Guthrie and many others usually just took existing tunes and added lyrics that said what they wanted to say.

Here's a wikipedia article on the relationship between the above songs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Settler's_Song_(Acres_of_Clams)
