Thread Name: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
Subject: RE: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
Google the following just as is

"City of New Orleans", goodman, copyright

It will take you to a gang of sites that make clear the authorship of the song.

I encountered a similar problem with a Pete Seeger song many moons back. It was ascribed to Melanie (the female singer) on many sites. Eventually, I located a reference to the liner notes of an album she did and in the notes was the statement that Pete Seeger had indeed written the song. However, lots of sites had her listed as the author. Nope. She sung it; she didn't write it.
