Subject: Any August Songs?
From: GeoffLawes

      This is an edited PermaThread®, used for a special project. This thread will be moderated by Geoff Lawes. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.
      -Joe Offer-



Can you suggest any songs associated with the month of August ie: (A) Any songs with August in the title (B) Any songs with an August date given in the lyrics (C) Any songs referencing an event that is known to have occurred in August even if the lyrics do not actually say so.
It would be very helpful to have links to performances of the songs and also more sources of information about them.

Below is an alphabetical index of the titles collected in this thread so far. If a title in this index is clicked then you should be jumped to the section of the thread in which most of the discussion and links for that title occurs. If you just want to add a new post to this thread use the “Post to this thread” or POST buttons to jump to the end of the thread. I shall sometimes rearrange “ late” posts to group them with the appropriate main area of discussion so that they are not overlooked.When I add to someone’s post I make this clear by doing so beneath an orange line like the one below. - Regards, GeoffLawes

BRIGG FAIR

It was on the fifth of August, the weather fair and fine,
Unto Brigg Fair I did repair; for love I was inclined.

I'm sorry to say I recorded Raglan Road with August (morn). Realising I'd sung August rather than Autumn I repeated it to save another take.

LE P’TIT BONHEUR
staying with French-language songs, the singer-songwriter French-Canadian Félix LeClerc was born and died in August. (August 2, 1914 – August 8, 1988) His song Le p'tit bonheur featured in a Mudcat Monday night singaround and is posted at

----------------------
David Kidman usually joins the Mudcat singaround. He is presently presenting songs of Keith Marsden, coming up to the anniversary of Marsden's death on 10 Aug. 1991. David sang Morley Main at another song circle last night (23 July) but that apparently is about a disaster that happened in a different month, Oct, in 1872. The lyrics of Morley Main and of several other Keith Marsden songs can be found posted in Mudcat.

THE GALWAY RACES

As I rode down to Galway town to seek for recreation
On the seventeenth of August me mind being elevated
There were multitudes assembled with their tickets at the station
Me eyes began to dazzle and I'm goin' to see the races.

NOW WESTLIN WINDS
(Robert Burns)

Now westlin winds, and slaught'ring guns
Bring August's pleasant weather;
The moorcock springs, on whirring wings,
Amang the blooming heather;
Now waving grain, wide o'er the plain,
Delights the weary Farmer;
The moon shines bright, as I rove at night,
To muse upon my Charmer.

CYPRUS BRIG

There is no mention of August in the lyrics of this song, but the notes in the DT say:

The seizure of convict ships by convicts happened a number of times.
This particular event occured in August 1829, and a manuscript in the
Mitchell Library has a poem of 48 lines that commemorates the seizure.
Titled 'Seizure of the Cyprus Brig in Recherche Bay' it is printed in
Geoffrey Ingleton's True Patriots All and attributed to Frank MacNamara
(Frank the Poet).

THE STREETS OF STAITHES

One fine August day as I was making my way
Along the hardship-troubled streets of Staithes,
I saw the seagulls flying in the grey northern sky
Heard the shifting chorus of the waves

WE WILL NEVER ALLOW ANOTHER ATOM BOMB TO FALL
Hiroshima Song (We Will Never Allow Another Atom Bomb to Fall) posted by GUEST,999 on 6 Aug 2011

A song by Ishiji Asada and Koki Kinoshita©1955
English words by Ewan MacColl

All that men have created with their hands
And their minds, for the glory of the world we live in,
Now it can be smashed, in a moment destroyed,
Deadly the haryest of two atom bombs.

Then, people of the world, you must watch, and take care
That the third atom bomb never comes

Lyrics in Japanese as well as in English translation:
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/genbaku-o-yurusu-maji-hiroshima-song-we-will-never-allow.html
Last year at Hiroshima day, I sent a Japanese friend a link to some videos. I think this was the song Pete Seeger sang in Japanese in one video. Junko said his Japanese pronunciation was good.

SONG OF THE DOG DAYS
Here are the lyrics to my "Dog Days Song." It doesn't specify August, but what can I say.

Song of the Dog Days - to the tune of The Four Maries

1.The weatherman warns of the heat wave;
with cirrus like feathers on high,
while the towering form
of a thunderstorm
surges up in southeastern sky.

2. The grasshoppers buzz by the roadside
so lively, despite the long drought,
and starlings wheel
over yellow fields
getting ready to head for the South.

3. So why do we call these the dog days?
In the heat there is nary a breeze.
And a sane dog's goal
is a nice cool hole
in the shade of the big leafy trees.

4. The butterflies visit the zinnias, [ZEEN yahs]
soft orange, bright yellow and tan.
There's the ghostly blur
of a hummingbird
finding nectar wherever it can.

5. The songbirds have gone into hiding
while distant coyotes give tongue,
and a redtail cries
from the pale blue skies
keeping track of its wandering young.

6. Come up on the porch, and we'll visit.
We'll all have a glass of iced tea.
There's Mary Lou
and Peggy Sue
and Mrs. Carmichael and me.

HARES ON THE MOUNTAIN
There's Hares On The Mountain, as considerably (and tenderly) rewritten by Chris Wood, with the bit about enjoying your ice-cream in the hot August sun and getting nothing done:

If all you young girls were like hares on the mountain
We'd soon get our boots on and go out a-walking.
But if all you young girls were like swans in the water
We'd soon take those boots off and dive in there after.

And if all you young girls were like stars in the dark
We'd chase round the world to avoid the dawn's spark.
And if all you young girls were like the sun in the morning
We'd sit bleary-eyed just to see the day dawning.

And if all you young girls were like rain from the sky
We'd stand out in T-shirts and shun all things dry.
And if all you young girls were like the hot August sun
Then we'd sit out with ice-cream and get nothing done.

And if all you young girls flew south like the swallow
There's be nothing for it but to up sticks and follow.
But if all you young girls were like my own true lover
Then all you young men would love them as I love her.


There's a Youtube of him and Andy Cutting singing it in a folk club. It's very grainy but it's wonderful.

On the seventeenth of August, the eighth month of the year
Down the new garden fields where T just met my dear,
She appeared like some goddess or some young divine,
And come like a torment to torture my mind.

Lammas Day, also known as Loaf Mass Day, is a Christian holiday celebrated in some English-speaking countries in the Northern Hemisphere on 1 August. While Loaf Mass Day is traditionally a Christian holy day, Lughnasadh is celebrated by Neopagans around the same time.

"I wish you strength to bring you pride,
And a love to keep you clean,
And I wish you luck, come Lammastide,
At racing on the green."

another one to add to the Hiroshima songs is ZHURAVLI / CRANES
https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=106885#2211631

In the author Rasul Gamzatov's native Dagestan, there is a an annual White Cranes Festival held 22 Oct, so I should remember to also add the song to the Oct song list when it starts.

There is yet another August connection as well as Hiroshima, however,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhuravli
"The poem's publication in the journal Novy Mir caught the attention of the famous actor and crooner Mark Bernes who revised the lyrics and asked Yan Frenkel to compose the music. When Frenkel first played his new song, Bernes (who was by then suffering from lung cancer) cried because he felt that this song was about his own fate: 'There is a small empty spot in the crane flock. Maybe it is reserved for me. One day I will join them, and from the skies I will call on all of you whom I had left on earth.' The song was recorded from the first attempt on 9 July 1969. Bernes died on 16 August 1969, about five weeks after recording the song, and the recording was played at his funeral. Later on,'Zhuravli' would most often be performed by Joseph Kobzon. According to Frenkel, 'Cranes' was Bernes' last record, his 'true swan song.'"

"AUGUST AND EVERYTHING AFTER Counting Crows....

If you need it..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4DeQrKoIAY

They're waking up Maria
'Cause everybody else has got someplace to go
She makes a little motion with her head
Rolls over, and says she's gonna sleep
For a couple minutes more
I said I'm sorry to Maria
For the cold-hearted thing that I have done
I've said I'm sorry by now, at least once
To just about everyone
She says, "I have forgotten what I'm supposed to do today"
And it slips my mind what I'm supposed to say
We're getting older and older and older and older
And always a little further out of the way
You look into her eyes
And it's more than your heart will allow
In August and everything after
You get a little less than you expected somehow

Well, I stumbled into Washington Square
Just as the sun began to rise
And I walked across the lawn to the cathedral
And I lay down in the shadow of St. Mary's in the sky
I'm just one of these late model children
Waiting for the king
But there ain't no sign of Elvis in San Francisco
It's just me and I'm playing this rock and roll thing
She wants to be just like me
And I want every damn thing that I can see
You know, one day you're Daddy's little angel
The next day, you're everything he wanted you to be

They dress you up in white satin
And they give you your very own pair of wings
In August and everything after
I'm after everything

Well, I got my reservations
And I got my seven-million dollar home
I got the number of some girl in North Dakota
Who's always wide awake
So I never have to spend the night alone
I got this nasty little habit
Of peeking down the shirts of all the little girls
As they pass me by
And I know you wonder when it all catches up to me
And they finally bring me down
Do you think I'm gonna cry?
Well listen, I already got my disease
So get your fucking filthy hands off of me
I hope you weren't expecting me to be crucified
The best that they can do
Is just to hang me from the nearest tree

It's midnight in San Francisco
And I'm waiting here for Jesus on my knees
In August and everything after
I need somebody else to bleed for me

In August and everything after
I need somebody else to bleed for me

Well, I came down from San Francisco
Because I had confidence and a military mind
But now everyone I know is turning showgirl
And dancing with their shirt off
In some Las Vegas hotel line
So I'm going to New York City
Cause it got a little sleazy here for me
And when I find myself alone
You know I'm never going home
You make the changes
The changes that you need
But I no longer know how to pray
I live in a dog town and it's a Dalmatian parade
I change my spots over and over
But they never seem to fade away

I am the last remaining Indian
Looking for the place where the buffalo roam
In August and everything after
Man, them buffalo ain't never coming home

In August and everything after
Man, them buffalo ain't

TWO YOUNG BRETHREN

There is April, there is May, there is June and July
What a pleasure it is for to see the corn grow.
In August we will reap it, we will cut, sheaf and bind it
And go down with our scythes for to mow.

There was just the four of us against the Matterhorn
There was Albert the Australian and John the Irishman
Me and Bill from Britain, mad dogs in the sun

THE BATTLE OF BOSWORTH FIELD

(Dick Miles)

1.On the 22nd of August with glistening sword and shield.
Brave Richard king of England,did fight at Bosworth Field.
He led his troops in battle,and death did bravely face
The White Rose did fall never more to be replaced.
   Chorus.A horse, a horse,my kingdom for a horse.

2.Fight on stout hearted swordsman for king and country fight.
and aim you well bold archers the enemy well fright.
oh take you heed Northumberland and false Lord Stanley.
Have courage me lads for victorious we shall be.
   Chorus.

3. So thick and fast the arrows around the king did fly
when to the south marching up the hill false Stanley he did spy.
he mounted on his charger,to fight all for his crown
The White Rose did fall never more to leave the ground
Chorus

4.Unseated from his charger as on the ground lay he
surrounded and out numberd by lord stanleys infantry
they quickly stoop to kill as hawks high in the sky
The White Rose did fall theselast words he then did cry
Chorus

5.and so the last of the House of York to death did come at last
He ruled his people fairly and the law for bail he passed
a good and noble ruler by the Tudors so disgraced.
The White Rose did fall never more to be replaced.
Chorus.

WHITBY SOUVENIRS

In the early hours of morning
At the end of an August day.
I went down to take a farewell walk,
By the sands of Whitby Bay.
The summer sun still lingered there,
On the breath of the dreaming sea,
And the waves were turning, half awake,
As I walked along to the quay.

I went out along the West Pier,
And on past the harbour light,
The stars had never seemed quite so close,
Nor had ever burned so bright.
The moon curled low above the waves,
And the breeze, as if in play,
Made a million shards of moonlight dance,
With the shadows out on the bay.

In the darkness I stood gazing,
For how long I could not say,
‘til my truant mind returned with time,
And ushered me away.
Between the river and the sea,
I walked back towards the shore,
And I felt as close to Whitby then,
As the moss grows close to the moor.

In the early hours of morning
At the end of an August day.
I went down to take a farewell walk,
By the sands of Whitby bay.
And now, whatever time may pass,
Or wherever fortune steers,
That walk, the moon, the sea and stars,
Are my Whitby souvenirs.

August 24th 1917



A song that recalls an incident in Blyth, Northumberland where young soldiers of the Warwickshire Regiment were preparing for service in the First World War.

BLYTH SANDS

The sun was out early that warm August day
Our Warwickshire lads had been sent far away
To a camp in the North East preparing for war
Most not yet twenty so young and so raw.

They'd been marching all morning in sweltering heat
Sweating, exhausted half dead on their feet
Arriving at Blyth Town they were ordered to rest
Bathe in the North Sea before their next test.

Six hundred soldiers ran onto the beach
Laughing and joking along the tide's reach
But the joy of that moment would soon turn to grief
When the pull of the current took men underneath.

Lt Colonel Chatterley sat high on his horse
Anxiously watching more waves changing course
His charges were swimming near to the land
But the wild swirling sea was beyond his command

Sgt John Riley was just back from France
He dived in to save them but stood little chance
Some waded out bravely grabbed five with their hands
But nine lives were taken that day on Blyth Sands.

The youngest to die was a boy from Kings Heath
His father stood dumbstruck in sheer disbelief
"This cannot have happened", poor Mrs Blunn said
She couldn't accept that her Jesse was dead.

At the inquest on Monday there were questions to ask
Coroner Rutherford had the sad task
"To swim there was madness", one fisherman claimed
But the jury decided no one should be blamed.

Lt Colonel Chatterley etc

Rosary beads, like teardrops on your fingers
Friends and comrades standing by
In their grief they wonder why, Michael,
In their hour of need you had to go

SADDLEWORTH RUSHCART SONGS

From An August Bank Holiday Lark by Deborah McAndrew for Northern Broadsides

When the Saddleworth Rushcart was revived in 1974 the Morris men also resurrected an old song, sung by their predecessors. To the traditional tune of ‘Brighton Camp’ the Rushcarters sing the following words, taken directly from the banner of the Greenfield village ‘Armistice Cart’ of 1918:

Oh the Rushcart lads are bonny bonny lads
The Rushcart lads are bonny
Oh they dance round 'cart and whistle like a lark
And that’s as good as ony

With heft and heart we pull the cart
In August bright and sunny
The Rushcart lads are bonny bonny lads
The Rushcart lads are bonny

They shoulder t’gun to fight the hun
Fight as good as ony
Oh the Rushcart lads are bonny bonny lads
The Rushcart lads are bonny

Saddleworth Morris Men sing part of the above song    
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PXW-IE7TZ0

With the kind permission of the Saddleworth Morris Men, Deborah McAndrew has used this song in the play, just altering the words slightly for the first Act when the young men have not yet gone to fight. On Rushcart Day the song is woven with another song, composed for this production by the great folk singer Mike Waterson just before he died. Director Barrie Rutter commissioned his friend, Mike, to write the song knowing that he was dying and would never see it performed.

Cut the rushes, pile them high
Stack them ‘til they reach the sky
So the church be warm and dry
Oh we are all rushcarters

On our hats a bright bouquet
Sing the summer, dance the day
Come we will, if come we may
Oh we are all rushcarters

We are not rich, we are not poor
We do not beg from door to door
You have seen us all before
We are all rushcarters

Through the village, up the hill
Round the green and by the mill
Bearing rushes, dancing still
We are all rushcarters

Dance we did in days of yore
Like our fathers did before
We will dance for evermore
We are all rushcarters

GOODMAN, SCHWERNER AND CHANEY
August 4, 1964 - Three young civil rights workers, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, were found murdered and buried in an earthen dam outside Philadelphia, Mississippi. They had disappeared on June 21 after being detained by Neshoba County police on charges of speeding. They were participating in the Mississippi Summer Project organized by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) to increase black voter registration.

THE SIEGE OF UNION STREET written by Alistair Hulett

The liner notes say, "The Unemployed Workers Union was formed ... during the Great Depression to fight evictions by heartless landlords of destitute families for non-payment of rent.... Matters came to a head in Union Street in the inner city suburb of Erskineville in Sydney, when over a thousand militants fought a pitched battle with police that lasted several days."

The first stanza goes,

You should have seen us down at Erko
Fourteenth August, Saturday night
To Newtown, Stanmore, Enmore and Petersham
Calls went out, "Workers unite!"
We built a bloody great wall
With planks and boards full seven foot tall
We didn't mind the howling winds and sleet
When we stood round the fire at Union Street

Other sources (e.g.,
http://jcmhood.squarespace.com/newtown-eviction) say the siege took place in Newtown, not in the neighboring suburb of Erskineville, and on 19 June 1931, not 14 August (and those were both Fridays, not Saturdays), but this nitpicking does not detract from the power of the song.

Here's a recording of Alistair, accompanied by Dave Swarbrick: https://youtu.be/ioD8AvSfp2c

LONDON BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN
On this day in 1831, New London Bridge was opened by King William IV.

Until the mid-eighteenth century the Old London Bridge was the only crossing on the Thames in London. It was damaged in a major fire in 1633, but in the fire of 1666 this damage acted as a fire break and prevented the flames from further damaging the bridge and crossing to the south side of the Thames. With its 19 narrow arches, it impeded river traffic and flow. Central piers were removed to create a wider navigational span. Widening and the removal of its houses was completed in 1763, but it remained relatively narrow and needed continual and expensive repairs. In the early nineteenth century it was decided to replace the bridge with a new construction. New London Bridge was opened in 1831 and survived until it was replaced in 1972. At that time, the 1831 bridge was dismantled and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Wikipedia

London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down,
London Bridge is falling down, my fair Lady.

ok.
it is in my songbook The Sailors Dream which is available from my websitehttp://www.dickmiles.com
but here it is for mudcat.

THE BATTLE OF BOSWORTH FIELD
(Dick Miles)

1.On the 22nd of August with glistening sword and shield.
Brave Richard king of England,did fight at Bosworth Field.
He led his troops in battle,and death did bravely face
The White Rose did fall never more to be replaced.
   Chorus.A horse, a horse,my kingdom for a horse.

2.Fight on stout hearted swordsman for king and country fight.
and aim you well bold archers the enemy well fright.
oh take you heed Northumberland and false Lord Stanley.
Have courage me lads for victorious we shall be.
   Chorus.

3. So thick and fast the arrows around the king did fly
when to the south marching up the hill false Stanley he did spy.
he mounted on his charger,to fight all for his crown
The White Rose did fall never more to leave the ground
Chorus

4.Unseated from his charger as on the ground lay he
surrounded and out numberd by lord stanleys infantry
they quickly stoop to kill as hawks high in the sky
The White Rose did fall theselast words he then did cry
Chorus

5.and so the last of the House of York to death did come at last
He ruled his people fairly and the law for bail he passed
a good and noble ruler by the Tudors so disgraced.
The White Rose did fall never more to be replaced.
chorus.

copyright, Dick Miles.
this song was written about 1984,and recorded on Cheating the Tide GVR227,with Martin Carthy playing guitar.
my inspiration was a book called The Daughter of Time,by Josephine Tey,I realised that Richard the Third,had been unfairly treated by historians,and particularly by William Shakespeare.
Shakespeare was writing at a time when if you criticised the existing monarchy you could be executed,and had to be careful not to upset the ruling Tudor dynasty,who were close relatives of Henry the Seventh.
I think this tune is suited to open guitar tuning,I played it in emodal or Eminor,but I would of course be happy for anyone to sing the song,and do it just how they want.
I am not sure but I think the tune is in the dorian mode. Dick Miles

ROOM FOR COMPANY or BARTHOLOMEW FAIR (lyrics in Digitrad)

The Bartholomew Fair was one of London's pre-eminent summer charter fairs. A charter for the fair was granted by Henry I to fund the Priory of St Bartholomew; and from 1133 to 1855 it took place each year on 24 August within the precincts of the Priory at West Smithfield ...The fair was suppressed in 1855 by the City authorities for encouraging debauchery and public disorder. (Wikipedia). The 24th of August is celebrated in Western Christianity as the Feast of St Bartholomew.

29 August 1782: The 100-ton battleship HMS Royal George - the largest warship in the world at the time of her launch in 1756 - sank off Spithead. Royal George was heeled over by rolling the ship's starboard guns into the centreline of the ship. Royal George quickly filled with water and sank, taking with her around 900 people, including up to 300 women and 60 children who were visiting the ship in harbour.

HMS Royal George sank at anchor off Portsmouth as told in Cowper's poem;
Toll for the Brave! the brave that are no more;
All sunk beneath the wave, fast by their native shore.

31 August 1688 John Bunyan, the Puritan preacher and author most famous for his popular allegory The Pilgrim's Progress, died on August 31, 1688.

TO BE A PILGRIM    aka   He Who Would Valiant Be   is an English Christian hymn using words of John Bunyan in The Pilgrim's Progress. It first appeared in Part 2 of The Pilgrim's Progress, written in 1684. The words were modified extensively by Percy Dearmer for the 1906 The English Hymnal.

At the same time it was given a new tune by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, who used a melody taken from the traditional song "Our Captain Cried All Hands" which he collected [from Mrs Verrall] in the hamlet of Monk's Gate [near Horsham in West Sussex] – hence the name of "Monks Gate" by which the melody is referred to in hymn books. Wikipedia

I can never forget singing this at school;
Hobgoblin nor foul fiend can daunt his spirit;
He knows he at the end shall life inherit.
Then fancies fly away; he'll fear not what men say;
He'll labour night and day to be a pilgrim.

I’D LIKE TO BUY THE WORLD A COKE

31 August 1900. Coca-Cola first went on sale in Britain.

I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke

January 18, 1971 Bill Backer, creative director on the Coca-Cola account for the McCann Erickson advertising agency, was flying to London to meet up with Billy Davis, the music director on the Coca-Cola account, to write radio commercials with two successful British songwriters, Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway, to be recorded by the New Seekers, a popular British singing group. [This great song was written in almost 24 hours and campaign’s directors tried to film the clip as quickly as the song.] The new budget eventually topped $250,000, a staggering amount in that era.

Davis allowed a group of studio singers to record the new song lyric to "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke." They called themselves "The Hillside Singers" in order to identify with the TV image. Within two weeks of the release of the Hillside Singers recording, it was on the national charts. Two weeks after that, Davis was able to convince the New Seekers to find the time and record their version of "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (in Perfect Harmony)," the new title for the song version of "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke."

He took them to the studio on a Sunday and produced the record which became the Top 10 hit, followed by the Hillside Singers' version as No. 13 on the pop charts. The song was recorded in a wide range of languages and sold more sheet music than any song in the previous 10 years. The Coca-Cola Company donated the first $80,000 in royalties earned from the song by writers and publishers to UNICEF under an agreement with the writers.

The Porrajmos, or Porajmos (translated 'the Devouring') is the term used to describe the Nazi genocide of Europe's Roma and Sinti (Gypsy) population. While these travelling people are included among the victims of genocide who are commemorated in the International Holocaust Memorial Day (27 Jan, beginning of the liberation of Auschwitz), 2 AUGUST is the European Memorial Day for Sinti and Roma

"On 2 August, we commemorate the last 4,300 Sinti and Roma in the German Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, who were murdered by the SS on that night in 1944 despite their fierce resistance. In memory of all 500,000 Sinti and Roma murdered in Nazi-occupied Europe, the European Parliament declared this date the European Holocaust Memorial Day for Sinti and Roma in 2015."

10 August On this day in 1842, the Mines Act was passed by the British Parliament, forbidding women and children to work underground.

I praise your good intentions, Sir, I love your kind and gentle heart
But now it's 1842, and you and me, we're miles apart
A hundred years and more will pass before we're walking side by side
But please accept my grateful thanks. God bless you Sir, at least you tried

In August 1842 the Children's Employment Commission drew up an act of Parliament which gave a minimum working age for boys in mines, though the age varied between districts and even between mines. The Mines and Collieries Act 1842 also outlawed the employment of women and girls in mines. In 1870 it became compulsory for all children aged between five and thirteen to go to school, ending much of the hurrying. It was still a common profession for school leavers well into the 1920s.

The 1969 song THE TESTIMONY OF PATIENCE KERSHAW by Frank Higgins (recorded by Roy Bailey and The Unthanks) is based on the testimony of Patience Kershaw (aged 17) when she spoke to the Children's Employment Commission. Her testimony includes: "The bald place upon my head is made by thrusting the corves ... I hurry the corves a mile and more underground and back; they weigh 3 cwt ... The getters that I work for are naked except for their caps ... Sometimes they beat me if I am not quick enough". It was published in My Song Is My Own (compiled by Kathy Henderson, Pluto Press, 1979). Wikipedia

In medieval times, Scarborough Fair lasted 45 days and started every year on August 15th.

In 1891 Kidson published a version "sung by a ballad singer in Whitby streets twenty or thirty years ago".
And he got a second version from Mr. A. Wardill, a railway pointsman of Goathland, refrain; Rue, parsley, rosemary and thyme.
The Whitby and Pickering Railway, one of earliest railways in Yorkshire, had opened throughout on 26 May 1836.
Cecil Sharp in 1913 collected a tune and three verses from Richard Hutton, aged 65, also in Goathland.
Ewan MacColl claims he collected the famous melody from Mark Anderson (1874–1953), a retired lead miner from Middleton-in-Teesdale, County Durham in 1947.

Jim Boyes, born Bridlington, 1945, and Belinda O'Hooley, born Leeds, 1971, notably perform Kidson's words to Mr Wardill's tune on Sensations of a Wound, The Long, Long Trail of Robert Riby Boyes. (No Masters NMCD44 2015).
Robert Riby "Croppie" Boyes, Jim's grandfather, was bred and born in Scarborough. Jim also chose the song because of the reference to the shirt, which leads to a song later in the story.

Pete Coe and Alice Jones sing the same version on the Yorkshire Garland page, The Search for Frank Kidson; https://www.yorkshirefolksong.net/kidson.cfm Scarborough Fair

28 August On this day in 1963, black civil rights leader Martin Luther King made his famous “I have a dream...” speech to a rally of 200,000 people in Washington.

ABRAHAM, MARTIN AND JOHN is a 1968 song written by Dick Holler. The song itself is a tribute to the memory of four assassinated Americans, all icons of social change: Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy. It was written in response to the assassination of King and that of Robert Kennedy in April and June 1968, respectively. Wikipedia

Another Katrina song is THE COVER OF THE NEW YORK TIMES,    by Truckstop Honeymoon , on their CD, Great Big Family. They lived in New Orleans, were out of town when Katrina hit, and were surprised to see a picture of their home, or, rather, the water covering it, on the cover of the New York Times.

The airship R-100 arrived in Saint-Hubert, Montreal in the early morning of August 1, 1930 after a voyage of almost 79 hours covering 3,364 miles (5,414 km). This was the first long-range international flight under the Imperial Airship Scheme.

The airship stayed there for 12 days with over 100,000 people visiting the airship each day. Nevil Shute, the senior stress engineer for R100, wrote that a song was composed by La Bolduc to make fun of the people's fascination with R100. Shute, Nevil (1954). Slide Rule: Autobiography of an Engineer. Wikipedia

TOUJOURS L'R 100 · La Bolduc
«Viens-tu avec moi son père, on va aller à Saint-Hubert
Va donc att’ler ta jument pis on va aller voir l’R-100
Mais regard-moi donc ti-Noir t’as mis ta ch’mise à l’envers
Il y a un trou dedans qu’est aussi grand que l’R-100.»
