Thread Name: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
Subject: RE: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
I see that all too often on the 'net. I met Steve many years back. I was with about three or four other people when he referred to that song as "his meal ticket"--that was after Arlo turned it into a hit. He responded to some questions about train cars receiving names that stayed with them for their life on the tracks. Indeed it is Steve's song. His and his alone. There were no co-authors. Fact.
