Atheists got no song, no hymnal but the blues?

Tip of the old scrub brush to Disciple/Methodist David Bates, with whom I used to enjoy singing bass on the back row of the choir.

From a 2010 production of Austin City Limits, Steve Martin joins the Steep Canyon Rangers in an a capella singing of the entire atheist hymnal.

Atheists have a very witty lyricist.

Update:  “Austin City Limits” asserted its copyright on that version (might be available at their website).  Here’s the song from a handheld camera at Merlefest, courtesy of Freedom Tuners:

Also via Boing-Boing; credit where credit is due.

    There is a message, both here and at your link, saying “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Capitol of Texas Public Telecommunications Council.”, and it won’t play.

    Who is this “Council”?
