Roll Down the Line by Pete Seeger    album released in 1957: Spotify
Liner notes for this album date this song to a violent industrial dispute in the 1890s in the town of Coal Creek, Tennessee, saying that "it is a miner's version of a song which
was sung by Negro convicts who were working in the mine" and that Macon "was a young man at the time of the Coal Creek rebellion and probably learned the song first hand". No claim
to arrangement credit for Seeger is made.
