Thread Name: Joe Hill song (not the usual one)
Subject: RE: Joe Hill song (not the usual one)
Hey Ian,

I have not forgot ye, lad. This day job is just killing me lately, and I have not been able to find it. I am on the trail though. I have gone through a number of my books and have a few to go. I am trying to dig through my collection of "The Little Red Songbook". These are published by the Industrial Workers of the World, more commonly known as the Wobblies. Hill was a wobblie organizer, and as we all no it appears he was shot more because of that than the offficial charge. It would help me somewhat if I knew about what era the song is.

All the best,

Mick
