Hickory Pond 02:14
Joe Hill 02:33
I lived a life so treasured My name is Ol’ Joe Hill I’ve long been dead and buried But my memory lives still It was on my 19th birthday I’d sow my dreams I swore But I had a mind for rambling When my ship had made the shore I saw the people’s hardships Could not deny their plight I wrote many a verses That sustained them through the night I went among the workers Down at the copper mines But the bosses that sit would have none of it And against me they conspired It was in the state of Utah They carried me to jail Framed and tried for murder To be shot and buried there And now I sit in prison My time it isn’t long Though I leave through great injustice My spirit lingers on
