Joe Hill – lyric

Joe Hill

(lyric, as sung at memorial service for Helen Kelly, 28 October, 2016)

 

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, alive as you and me

Says I, but Joe, you are ten years dead

I never died, said he. I never died, said he.

 

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, smiling with his eyes

Says Joe, 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 (working men organize/ 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 and me

Says I, but Joe, you are ten years dead

I never died, said he. I never died, said he.
