For what it's worth, I keep thinking of a song, British I think,

about a cynical and nasty murderer going to be hanged named

Sam Hall. There are several versions. In one the chorus goes:

My name is Samuel Hall. It is Sam Hall. (repeat)

My name it is Sam Hall and I hate you one and all.

You're a bunch of muckers all. God damn your eyes.


I think you're thinking of Joe Hill, the labor organizer who was executed

in Utah over protests from people including President Wilson. Last

telegram: "Don't mourn. Organize." Famous song about him: "I dreamed I

saw Joe Hill last night/alive as he could be" etc.

Your are right, my mind was not working at warp speed this morning when I

originally responded. but I a very glad you included a bit from the song

about Joe Hill, which is REALLY what I had confused in my mind. One thing

about this list, errors get corrected (usually real fast!) Thanks.
