"All These Things" is a 1976 single written by Allen Toussaint under the pseudonym of "Naomi Neville". While previously recorded by Art Neville and Lee Tillman, the biggest chart hit version was performed by Joe Stampley (see also The Uniques). "All These Things" was Stampley's third number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for a single week and spent a total of thirteen weeks on the chart.[1]

A re-recording in 1981 charted at number 62. John Boutte recorded it as well, and performs it regularly, and did so at Alan Toussaint 's memorial.
