Thread Name: Lyr Add:The Ballad of Stalin (songs about Stalin)
Subject: RE: Req/Add: The Ballad of Stalin (Ewan MacColl)
LYR ADD: Little Joe the Rustler
(This isn't quite the right thread, but it's here that the
Joe Glazer's lyrics were posted.) I added a verse to bring
the story to its ending:

When in nineteen-fifty-six the Party Congress met
Little Joe lay there by Lenin's side
But when the Congress ended and Khrushchev had his way
Little Joe lay in the dirt outside

(Final chorus)
He had rustled all through Europe, rustled through the world
From Germany out to the China Sea
Joe Stalin purged and plundered, 'til he himself was purged
And hustled out of Russian history
