Song Writer Credit?
I have CDs and a vinyl record with the song.

  • Johnny Horton's 16 Biggest Hits, Columbia/Legacy (1999) CK 69971 lists M. Phillips as songwriter. Sony owns Columbia. (On a slightly different note, other sources say MAC not Mike Phillips)
  • Johnny Horton's Greatest Hits (1961 vinyl), Columbia CS8396 - lists M. Phillips
  • Classic Country Jukebox, Sommerset Enterprises, Universal Music (2011, 2008), 56653 B0011949-02, lists J. Horton and T. Franks as the songwriters.
  • The BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) database, also lists Johnny Horton and Tillman Ben Franks as the songwriter, here

I'm willing to go with the vinyl record as the definitive source (I've had it in my possession since 1973), but I would think the BMI database, where they have to pay royalties to the songwriters to be a pretty good source! Not wanting to change anything, just wanted to point out there are discrepancies. DTavona (talk) 00:51, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
