Joe Hill (1879-1915) was a Swedish American songwriter.

"A pamphlet, no matter how good, is never read more than once, but a song is learned by heart and repeated over and over; I maintain that if a person can put a few cold, common sense facts into a song, and dress them up in a cloak of humor to take the dryness off of them, he will succeed in reaching a great number of workers who are too unintelligent or too indifferent to read a pamphlet or an editorial on economic science."—Joe Hill

What is the connection of Joe Hill's song, 'The Preacher And The Slave', and the state of Kentucky. The lyrics below appear on several of Google's website directory for You will eat, bye and bye In that glorious land above the sky; Work and pray, live on hay, You’ll get pie in the sky when you die. Thank you.
