Joe Hill

A Union organizing song
1. Joe Hill
Paul Robeson
Paul Robeson, vocal (From Favorite Songs Monitor 580)

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, Alive as you or me. Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead." "I never died," says he; / "I never died," says he.

"In Salt Lake City, Joe," says I, / Him standing by my bed, "They framed you on a murder charge." Says Joe, "But I ain't dead"; / Says Joe, "But I ain't dead."

"The copper bosses killed you, Joe, / They shot you, Joe," says I. "Takes more than guns to kill a man." Says Joe, "I didn't die"; / Says Joe, "I didn't die."

And standing there as big as life / And smiling with his eyes, Joe says, "What they can never kill Went on to organize, / Went on to organize."

"From San Diego up to Maine, / In every mine and mill, Where workers strike and organize, It's there you'll find Joe Hill; / It's there you'll find Joe Hill."

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, / Alive as you or me. Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead." "I never died," says he; / "I never died," says he; "I never

died," says he.
