For this weekend let’s hear it from Adhamh Roland singing Rebel Girl.

“The Rebel Girl” is a song written by Joe Hill in 1911. The song was published in the Little Red Songbook of the Industrial Workers of the World, and as sheet music in 1915. Hill wrote the song for IWW orator Elizabeth Gurley Flynn.

The song was recorded with modernized lyrics by Hazel Dickens on the 1990 Smithsonian Folkways album Don’t Mourn, Organize! Songs of Labor Songwriter Joe Hill. This year is the 100th anniversary of the murder of Joe Hill. Through out this year we will continue to post songs that Joe wrote and that are dear to all folks in the labor movement.
