From his song “Joe Hill,” about the labor leader and song writer who was born in Sweden on this date in 1879. Joe Hill, sung here by Paul Robeson:
I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you and me
Says I "But Joe, you're ten years dead"
"I never died" says he, "I never died" says he
"I never died" says he"
