The Eighth of January
The Month of January (trad Irish, I think?)
Incredible String Band - Cold Days of February
Lou and Peter Berryman - The February March
Lou and Peter Berryman - April May
many songs that start with "One morning in May"
Staines Morris, or various May-day songs, for May
Rosebud in June (Steeleye Span, and probably others)
Robert Burns - Song Composed in August (a/k/a Now Westlin Winds)
trad (Martin Carthy) All of a Row or Reaphook and Sickle for September
Incredible String Band - October Song
Gordon Bok - Turning Toward the Morning ("Now October's growing thin, and November's coming home . . ."
Gordon Lightfoot - Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, for November
Tommy Thompson/Red Clay Ramblers - Hot Buttered Rum, for December
I'm missing July. The only songs I can think of are about Independence Day, which doesn't seem to do the full month justice.
