I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night
words by Alfred Hayes, music by Earl Robinson, adapted by Joan Baez

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 said he,
I never died said he.

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.
Says Joe What they can never kill
went on to organize, went on to organize

From San Diego up to Maine,
in every mine and mill,
where working-men defend their rights,
it’s there you find Joe Hill,
it’s there you 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 said he, I never died said he.
