Doctor John Lyr Req: Pie in the Sky (8) RE: Lyr Req: Pie in the Sky, I think 13 May 00


Last verse:-

Working men from all countries unite, Side by side for freedom we will fight' Till this world and its wealth we have gained, To the grafters we'll sing this refrain:

You will eat by and by, When you've learned how to cook and to fry, Chop some wood it'll do you good; You will eat in that sweet by and by.

(That's a lie!)

Good recordings by Cisco and Oscar Brandt.

Does anyone know the film "The Ballad of Joe Hill" which I saw on BBC TV in the 70's and have never heard of since. I recall it showed Joe Hill listening (and heckling?) a preacher and writing this song. Dr John
