“Now you’re telling me You’re not nostalgic Then give me another word for it You who are so good with words And at keeping things vague Because I need some of that vagueness now It’s all come back too clearly Yes I loved you dearly And if you’re offering me diamonds and rust I’ve already paid.”
I’ll get back to this

Joe Hill (October 7, 1879 – November 19, 1915), born Joel Emmanuel Hägglund and also known as Joseph Hillström, was a Swedish-Americanlabor activist, songwriter, and member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, familiarly called the “Wobblies”). A native Swedish speaker, he learned English during the early 1900s, while working various jobs from New York to San Francisco. Hill, an immigrant worker frequently facing unemployment and underemployment, became a popular songwriter and cartoonist for the union.
