Can anyone help id the author?

Angelina
From the singing of Roger Stone who learned from a Jonathan Edwards recording

When you left the reservation,
didn't I promise you my life?
Said I'd make it in the city;
I can't farm this land no more
And didn't you like the dress
I bought you at the ladies store in town
So the people wouldn't be laughing
at the Indian skins you wore
 
Oh Angelina, did you have to go so far
Seven weeks I have not found you
And it's snowing on the mountain
 
Waiting at the railway station
I didn't mean to make you cry
But the conductor said to hurry
or we'd all be left behind
You know I couldn't ne'er bought the ticket
if it cost a dollar more
And I laughed, laughed and turned around
to take your hand and you were gone

It was heard on a recording Have a Good Time For Me. Currently it is on a compilation CD Good Time Cowboy. On a web-site that I can't find today, I read that the Have a Good Time LP was a collection of songs from friends of Jonathan Edwards.

So, the question is, did Jonathan Edwards write this song? OR did someone else write it?

The credit for 'Angelina' on the sleeve of 'Have a good time for me' Atco SD 7036 is given as 'Malcolm McKinney, Castle Hill Publishing Ltd, (ASCAP)'. Edwards wrote none of the songs on the album. It includes another McKinney compostition: 'Thirty miles to go'.

Title: Have A Good Time For Me
Artist: Jonathan Edwards

With the success of our 'Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy' reissue a few years back, we thought it was time to delve back into Jonathan Edwards' Atco album catalog for this nugget. Released in 1973, 'Have a Good Time for Me' featured Edwards the singer and interpreter rather than the songwriter, as he covers the work of Jimmie Rodgers, Joe Dolce, Malcolm McKinney and Eric Lilljequist with a band to dream of: Al Anderson, David Bromberg, Bill Keith and Bill Elliot among others! The result was the most country album Jonathan had released to date, and, strange as it may sound for a collection of covers, his most personal as well. Includes 'Have Yourself a Good Time for Me; King of Hearts; Places I've Been; I'm Alone; Travelin' Blues; Rollin' Along; My Home Ain't in the Hall of Fame; Angelina; Thirty Miles to Go; Sit Down Rock and Roll Man', and 'When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder'. A 'Collectors' Choice Music' exclusive!

Jonathan Edwards.. not to be confused with that crackpot Psychic guy, John Edwards. LOL


I finally bought a CD Copy of his self-titled debut album. He wrote most of the songs on that one but there is a Malcolm McKinney song on it called 'Sometimes' and another called 'Don't Cry Blue'. It's a wonderful Album and holds up very well. Very pleasant to listen to. If all you know of him is his one big top 40 hit 'Sunshine' (as in .. 'sunshine go away today, I don't feel much like dancin'...') you should get it and take a listen.

I'll have to go look for those other CDs. This is the only one I have. I like his voice very much. I like to put this CD in along with Pure Prarie League. They go well together.
