      though I have a lot of them... We used to sing all the time — in groups around campfires then beer kegs.

        so I didn't pay too much attention, but googling "The Little Red Songbook" or IWW I believe I saw several sites that provided "sheet music".
        I'll bet I've given away a dozen copies back in the day when they really were little, the covers were certainly red (not to mention the lyrics) and they were $5 apiece from the IWW. Been awhile, but that's a direction to look.
