DigiTrad:
ARAGON MILL
BLEEDING HEARTS
CROSSING THE BORDER
GO TO WORK ON MONDAY

IT'S THE SAME THE WHOLE WORLD OVER 4
MEMORIAL
PASS THE MUSIC ON
TRUCK DRIVING WOMAN
WILD ROSE OF THE MOUNTAIN

This sounds like a song we should have in our collection.

I got this much from a sample at Allmusic.com:


PAPER HEART (excerpt)
Charlotte Brody, Si Kahn

...they shot him down.
This whole wide world's his buryin' ground,
But the songs of the working people are his marking stone.
If heaven is one big union, I know that's where I'll find him,
Playing cards with Big Bill Heywood, telling jokes with Mother Jones....


[Si Kahn's recording is on the various-artists compilation "Don't Mourn - Organize!: Songs of Labor Songwriter Joe Hill" (Smithsonian Folkways Recordings CD 40026, 1990).]

Some of the links in the following lyrics go to Wikipedia; others go to folkarchive.de, which has the text for lots of songs by Joe Hill, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan & Doc Watson.


PAPER HEART
As sung by Si Kahn on "Don't Mourn -- Organize! Songs of Labor Songwriter Joe Hill" (Smithsonian/Folkways SF 40026, 1990)

1. There's a long, long line of people tryin' to keep from cryin'.
There's always someone dyin', but today's just not the same.
There's a man shot dead in Utah with a paper heart pinned on him,
Framed up without pardon; I guess you know his name.

CHORUS: Well you say you saw him out last night, but I hear him ev'ry day
In the voices of the people, in the songs they sing and play.
They framed him up and they shot him down.
This whole wide world's his buryin' ground,
But the songs of the working people are his marking stone.

2. If heaven is one big union, I know that's where I'll find him:
Playing cards with Big Bill Haywood, telling jokes with Mother Jones,
Casey Jones and long-haired preachers, Mr. Block and Scissor Bill
Sent to hell a-flyin' by songs no one can kill. CHORUS
