Steve Earle - "Rich Man's War"

Joan Baez - "Joe Hill"

A 1930 poem titled "I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night" was turned into
this song in 1936. Hill was an itinerant laborer who became involved in
the Industrial Workers of the World or "Wobblies." He was also a poet
and songwriter for the cause. He was executed by firing squad in 1915
for a dubious murder conviction. He had written an IWW friend: "Don't
waste any time in mourning. Organize."
