Happy Birthday!

John L Lewis
was born 2/12/1880
(d.6/11/1969)

        John L had a dream but it's broken, it seems
        Now our union's a-lettin' us down.
        Last week they took away my hospital card,
        Sayin', "Why don't you leave this old town?"
        O, let's go downtown, boys, and hang around,
        Well, maybe it ain't so bad;
        Go on back home and they meet you at the door,
        It's, "What did you bring me, dad?"

                "Blue Diamond Mines," by 'Than Hall (Jean Ritchie) on A Time for Singing
