Oh Mr. Block you were born by mistake
You make me ache
You take the cake
Tie a rock on your block and jump into the lake
Please do it for liberty's sake.



memory fragment of a wobblies song? of the 30's about
a reactionary conservative character of that era.

Written by Joel Emmanuel Haaglund, aka Joseph Hillstrom, aka Joe Hill.
Here's Utah Phillips singing it at the 1984 live sessions that produced the CD REBEL VOICES in Flying Fish. That's me playing banjo.
Mr. Block-Utah Phillips & Mark Ross

You are most welcome, Don. However, I should state that Mark knows way-far lots about folk music. I know zip except how to find some stuff with Mr Google.
