Hippie Chick Joe Hill's Ashes (18) RE: Joe Hill's Ashes 14 Feb 03


There's an interesting song on an album of songs about and/or by Joe Hill, and it explains that his ashes were mailed to every state except Utah, where he was killed. An envelope tore open, spilled his ashes and the government confiscated them; then sent them to the Smithsonian (?) and the Wobblies in Chicago have finally reclaimed them.   I am quoting you the gist of the song lyrics. I don't remember the titles at this hour of the morning....

Perhaps a search engine could provide more information.
