    I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night -- the anthem of workers

    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, Joe," says I to him,
    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 forgot to kill
    Went on to organize,
    Went on to organize."

    "Joe Hill ain't dead," he says to me,
    "Joe Hill ain't never died.
    Where working men are out on strike
    Joe Hill is at their side,
    Joe Hill is at their side."

    "From San Diego up to Maine,
    In every mine and mill,
    Where workers strike and organize,"
    Says he, "You'll find Joe Hill,"
    Says he, "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

    Joe Hill, an IWW union organizer and poet, was executed in 1915 after being framed on a murder charge

    The trial was a sham, but it's a distinct possibility that he actually was guilty.

    What? I didn't say anything.

    he had a gun in his hand, but he had not been near the site of the murder; at least they produced no good evidence that he had
