                OK, this has always been credited to John Carter and Tim Gilbert, but
according to the SAC article in _Goldmine_ #359 John Carter wrote lyrics
to SAC (and future Lynyrd Skynyrd) guitarist Ed King's instrumental
track, 'The Happy Whistler'; Tim Gilbert had written other songs with
John Carter before (most notably the Rainy Daze 'That Acapulco Gold',
which hit #70 nationwide before program directors found out what
'Acapulco Gold' was) and was apparently co-credited by mistake.
