Thread Name: Joe Hill song (not the usual one)
Subject: RE: Joe Hill song (not the usual one)
Has anyone checked out the recent Billy Bragg song about Joe Hill, possibly based on a Woody Guthrie poem? I've heard about it, but I've yet to hear it. It might be the one that was recently played.

By the way, the tune most of us know for "Joe Hill's Will" was written by Ethel Raim, not Ruth Rubin, and has been recorded by both Jonathan Eberhart and Joe Hickerson for Folk-Legacy. Wonderful tune, too!
