1. I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you or me.                 Alive, alive as you or me.
Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead."
"I never died," says he.         "I never died,".
                                           Tenors "I never never died" says he
"I never died," says he..         "I never never died,"

2. "In Salt Lake City Joe" says I,
him standing by my bed,         him standing by my bed, my bed,
"'They framed you on a murder charge."
says Joe, "But I ain't dead."     says Joe, "But I ain't dead."
Says Joe, "But I ain't dead."    but I ain't dead."

3. "The copper bosses killed you, Joe.
They shot you, Joe," says I.      They shot you, Joe,"says I, says I.
"Takes more than guns to kill a man,
says Joe, "I didn't die."            says Joe, "I didn't die.
Says Joe, "I didn't die."            I didn't die."
