Joe Offer Origins: Little Red Wing / Union Maid (44) RE: Origins: Little Red Wing / Union Maid 08 Dec 20

Rise Up Singing has a "feminist" verse to "Union Maid" that's attributed top Cappie Israel:
    You women who want to be free, Take a little tip from me.
    Break outa that mold we've all been sold, you got a fighting his-to-ree
    The fight for women's rights with workers must unite
    Like Mother Jones, move those bones to the front of every fight.

But Rise Up Singing's Peter Blood received a letter from Cappie Israel, now 80 years old. She says she didn't right the verse. So, now Peter's question , who did write the verse?
