Ballad Of Sacco And Vanzetti Part 3

Album: Sacco and Vanzetti (1971)

Songfacts®:

  • With lyrics by Baez and music by Ennio Morricone, this is written as a letter to his son from Nicola Sacco as the father was about to be sent to the electric chair. Sadly, the undoubted talent of Joan Baez was wasted on such an historically inaccurate film. >>
