Joe South wrote the song; it doesn't refer to the book.  Lynn
Anderson recorded it and had a megahit with it.  She got a Grammy
and other awards, and the album went platinum in the USA and
gold in 16 other countries.  [Why can I use the Internet to look
this up, but didn't think to look 'slash' up?  <sigh>]


In America, anybody can be president.  That's
one of the risks you take.
