Subject: RE: Greatest/Favorite Songwriters?
My favorite songwriters are
  1. Thomas Moore (1779-1852)
  2. Henry Clay Work
  3. Stephen Foster
  4. Woody Guthrie
  5. Jimmie Rogers
  6. Hank Williams (THE one and only)
  7. Phil Ochs
  8. Ian Tyson
  9. Bill Staines (who should probably be listed at #1)
  10. Cheryl Wheeler (what a voice!)

These aren't ranked in any specific order, I just wrote 'em down as fast as I could think of 'em.
