Now listening to Joan Baez : "Here's to you"

Written as a protest against the death sentences of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. There was a film "Sacco e Vanzetti" about it, for which the song was written. The last 2 lines of the (short) lyrics were a quote by one of the men. Ennio Morricone wrote the music to this song.
The song seems to have been re-used on the soundtrack of another film later on, "Life Aquatic".
