Traditional Song or Cover?

Listening to Radio National I stumbled across a beautiful version

of "Won't You Come and Sing for Me" being performed by

Chris Theli (mandolin guru from Nickel Creek

His stripped back version of this traditional gospel song inspired me to get a bit Indie Bluegrass in this version of Wayfaring Stranger.

I have been busy writing my own songs lately so messing around with an existing tune made me wonder ....When does a cover stop being a cover and become a traditional folk/gospel standard?
