He was the one who brought the sharecroppers in, and the union songs based on hymns. His images inspired us Lee thought in terms of events, history; he saw large, and that rubbed off on the LP of us. He was the philosopher of the folk music movement. He stretched the canvas. And he was funny—and God, we needed that. There wasn't much humor around.
Although the first year of People's Songs was very successful, once again his co-workers found Hays "difficult" and indecisive.
At a board meeting in latePete Seeger proposed Hays be replaced as executive secretary with energetic young friend of his, Felix Landau, whom Pete had met during his army days in Saipan. In retrospect, Pete confessed "I think it was a mistake. Lee's perceptions were probably truer than mine. Crushed, Hays returned to Philadelphia to stay with Walter Lowenfels and family. From there he began contributing a weekly column to the People's Songs Bulletin aiming to educate younger people about Claude Williams and the labor and civil rights struggles of the s.
InPeople's Songs put all of its efforts into supporting the presidential campaign of Henry Wallace on the Progressive Party ticket. Not long after Wallace's decisive defeat, People's Songs went bankrupt and disbanded. A spinoff, however, People's Artists, showed somewhat more vitality. The Thanksgiving after Wallace's defeat, People's Songs decided to put on a fundraising Hootenanny that included folk dances from many lands.
It featured an Israeli song, the Appalachian "Flop-eared mule", and "Hey-lally-lally-lo" from the Bahamas. The audience went wild. Four months later they settled on a name: The Weavers. The Weavers were present. Hays escaped in a car with Guthrie and Seeger after a mob claiming to be anti-communist patriots attacked the cars of audience and performers after the show. One fan, Gordon Jenkinsa bandleader who had had numerous hits under his belt and was a director of Decca records, returned night after night.
Born in Missouri, Jenkins was especially entranced with Lee Hays' folksy stage patter, laced with colorful Ozark anecdotes. Jenkins convinced his reluctant fellow executives at Decca to record the group. Jenkins backed them up with his own lush string orchestra and huge chorus, but tactfully and with care, so as not to obscure the words and musical personalities of the groups' personnel. To everyone's surprise, The Weavers, who LP to fit into no musical category, produced billboard hit after billboard hit, selling millions of singles.
However, the Korean War had begun and the red scare was in full swing. In SeptemberTime magazine reviewed them this way:. Last week a group of four high-spirited folksters known as the Weavers had succeeded in shouting, twanging and crooning folk singing out of its cloistered corner into the commercial big time After the war the four met in Greenwich Village get-togethers, and decided that their voices, plus Pete's banjo and recorder, and Fred's guitar, made just the right blend.
Sponsored by Red-tinged People's Songs, they got enthusiastic but unremunerative backing from fellow travelers who have long claimed folk songs as their particular province. InPete Seeger was listed as a probable subversive in the anti-communist pamphlet Red Channels and was placed on the entertainment industry blacklist along with other members of the Weavers.
Their records dropped from Decca's catalog and from radio broadcasts, and unable to perform live on television, radio, or in most music venues, The Weavers broke up in Subsequently, Hays liked to maintain that another entertainer, called Lee Hayes, spelled with an "e", was also banned from entertaining because of the similarity of his name. He wrote reviews and short stories, one of which, "Banquet and a Half", published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and drawing on his experiences in the South in the s, was the recipient of a prize and was reprinted in the U.
The Weavers had not lost their audience appeal—the LP of the concert The Weavers at Carnegie Hall issued two years later by Vanguard, was one of the three top-selling albums of the year. This led to a tour made difficult by Hays' invalidism and anxietiesanother album, and more tours, including one to Israel. InHays began recording a series of children's albums with The Baby Sittersa group that included a young Alan Arkinthe son of a family friend of the Robinsons.
After the great financial success of Peter Paul and Mary 's cover of "If I Had a Hammer" in the mids, Hays, whose mental and physical health had been shaky for years, lived mostly on income from royalties. Inhe moved to Croton-on-HudsonNew York where he devoted himself to tending his organic vegetable gardencooking, writing, and socializing. He wrote to a friend that in his new surroundings he had no idea how to earn new money but that, "Having a listed number with no fear of Trotskyite crank calls is a huge relief".
Hays, who had always been overweight, had been diagnosed in with diabetes, a condition the doctors thought he had probably suffered from, along with TB, for many years previously. Both his legs eventually had to be amputated. Younger friends, among them Lawrence Lazare and Jimmy Callo, helped to take care of him. His bad health LP, Hays performed in several Weavers reunion concerts, the last of which was in November at New York City 's Carnegie Hall. Two months later he was dead. Near the end of his life Hays, wrote a farewell poem, "In Dead Earnest", inspired perhaps by Wobbly organizer Joe Hill 's lyrical "Last Testament"  but with an earthy Ozark frankness:.
Sun, rain, and worms will have their way, Reducing me to common clay. All that I am will feed the trees And little fishes in the seas. When corn and radishes you munch, You may be having me for lunch. Then excrete me with a grin, Chortling, "There goes Lee again! He died on August 26, from diabetic cardiovascular disease at home in Crotonand, in accordance with his wishes, his ashes were mixed with his compost pile.
Joe Hill's Last Testament My body? Perhaps some fading flower then Would come to life and bloom again. This is my last and final will.
Good luck to all of you, Joe Hill, LP. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Lee Hays. Orval [Faubus] was a grass-roots populist in his early days and worked at the Highlander school. He was in charge of the sanitary facilities, and he kept it beautiful; he even put curtains up in the windows of the two-holer we had. But what he was best at was shoveling it out, a function which had to be performed periodically.
He really put his back into it. Now he's in the Arkansas State Houseperforming the same function. If it wasn't for the honor, I'd just as soon not have been blacklisted. If [Benedict] Arnold was successful, we would have had a set of horse- faced rulers, but that might be preferable to what we have now. Sing out, Love! Ruin The Party by The Jagaloons.
