Can you suggest any songs associated with the month of March (A) Any songs with March in the title (B) Any songs with a March date given in the lyrics (C) Any songs referring to an event that is known to have occurred in March 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 until the end of March 2021. 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 above “Post to this thread” or Post buttons,below, 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. Regards, GeoffLawes

MARCH WINDS GONNA BLOW MY BLUES ALL AWAY
recorded by the Carter Family on December 11, 1934. Though nominally written by A. P. Carter and his friend Leslie Riddle, it is essentially a collection of floating blues verses. Riddle, who was Black, not only collected songs with Carter but supplied him with blues material A.P. may not have heard otherwise.

My mama told me long years ago
Never to marry no girl that I know
Spend all your money, wear out your clothes
What will become of you, God only knows

Sun's gonna shine in my back door some day
Sun's gonna shine in my back door some day

From: Ged Fox

A brave new Ballad of Admiral Collingwood (died 7th March 1810)
to be sung by his countrymen to the Anti-gallican
else to Humpty Dumpty or what you will.

Our country calls us all to arms,
To keep us safe from French alarms; repeat
Then let us all her voice obey-
For King and Collingwood haste away.
Haste away, haste away,
For King and Collingwood haste away.

The noblest family on the Tyne
Is scarce more famed than Collingwood’s line;
In Newcastle he first saw the day
And soon to sea did haste away

The Preston bark of noble fame
Resounded soon to Collingwood’s name
At Bunker Hill he walk’d ashore,
We’re Collingwood’s lads for ever more

The fever coast of fort San Juan
Could not harm our Northumbrian
Great Nelson’s friend e’er since that day
And his right hand in each affray.

Off Ushant under Black Dick Howe
The Barfleur fought the battle through.
We trounc’d the Frenchies where they lay
That first of June, that Glorious day

At Cape St Vincent brave Sir John
Gain’d victory against the Don
Such a fight we had on Valentine’s Day
We made the Spaniards haste away

At Trafalgar first in the fray,
And last to leave at end of day.
Santyana sail’d in bright array
‘Til Cuddie claw’d her stern away.

Lord Collingwood of high renown
Lived once in famous Morpeth town
Now in St Paul’s his corpse doth lay
By Nelson’s ’til the Judgement Day!

JSMF 2005



Thanks Ged Fox,another song on the same topic is "Cuddy" , a modern song written about Collingwood by Pete Wood which is to be found at the Collingwood Society website https://collingwoodsociety.co.uk/collingwood-archive/

CUDDY

He was born in Newcastle-on-Tyne
Soon sailed on a ship of the line
With Roddam and Braithwaite he learnt his trade
Northumbrians all they were made
Preston and Portland his ships in the west
Fighting the French and the rest,
He was made lieutenant at Bunker Hill
And Geordies remember him still

Chorus
Cuddy’s the boy for me
Yes Cuddy’s the man at sea
Fighting the French where’er they be
Cuddy’s the boy for me

At the glorious first of June
Barfleur had sails in full tune
Flag Captain Collingwood fought with renown
But Bowyer and Howe took the crown
At St Vincent the Spanish came on
He took two of their ships in the van
He dismasted the greatest vessel they had
Santissima Trinidad

Whilst Nelson went chasing the French east and west
Cuthbert kept watch on the rest
Keeping the Spanish from putting to sea
For month after month on his lee.
The enemy fleets they made way
Two columns were formed on that day
The weather with Nelson in Vict-or-
But Collingwood led with the lee

So swift was the brave Collingwood
That he was the first to taste blood
The Sovereign fired the very first shot,
And withstood the Spanish onslaught
Then after Nelson was gone,
Cuddy the battle had won
The prizes were lost, as the storm did rage
But he saved the fleet of the age

After Trafalgar he ailed
Ne’er again to England he sailed
They made him a Lord and a medal of gold
But “We need you at sea” he was told
Yes was a son of the Tyne
Was buried with Nelson his friend of renown
But for Geordies he takes the crown

Roud Number:V20191 and the lyrics can be seen here

Thanks for the Paul Robeson link. My dad was a bass and Paul R. a favourite of us both. Didn't know he sang that.
Singing teacher was determined I could be a tenor but admitted I think that I was baritone, so sometimes a bass, sometimes a tenor.

GREENLAND WHALE FISHERIES

The action of
Greenland Whale Fisheries happens on a day of March. The version in my head, which I think is from Judy Collins and Theodore Bikel, has it as March 18th, 1800-something. The version in the database here has it as March 17, 17-hundred-and-84.

Thank you   GUEST,Karen Impola - Singers of 'The Greenland Whale Fisheries'seem to choose a variety of calendar dates (and years ) . Most sing “the 18th day of June” as I discovered in the JUDY COLLINS & THEODORE BIKEL recording that you mention.
JUDY COLLINS & THEODORE BIKEL ~ The Greenland Whale Fisheries     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A79-0mYkbJA       Thanks for finding a version to add to the March tally of songs.

I shall put this tip 'behind my ear' and perhaps roll it out for the June version of this thread.

ROOT, HOG, OR DIE

`Twas on the twenty-fourth of March we got under way,
Bound to the Western Bank on a bright and sunny day:
The wind was off the land and clear was the sky;
That night we shot in Portland Dock - Root, hog, or die.

On the first day of March in the year of ninety-three
The first recreation was in this country
The King's County gentlemen o'er hills, dales and rocks
They rode so joyfuly in search of a fox

OUTSIDE OF A SMALL CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
(Phil Ochs)

Look outside the window, there's a woman being grabbed
They've dragged her to the bushes and now she's being stabbed
Maybe we should call the cops and try to stop the pain
But Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the game
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends.


The first verse is a commentary on the murder of Kitty Genovese.
She was murdered March 14th, 1964 in NYC, while 38 neighbors looked
on without either helping or calling for the police.



GerryM, Thank you for OUTSIDE OF A SMALL CIRCLE OF FRIENDS

BALLAD OF THE TRIANGLE FIRE
(Ruth Rubin)

In the heart of New York City, near Washington Square,
In nineteen eleven, March winds were cold and bare,
A fire broke out in a building, ten stories high,
And a hundred and forty six young girls in those flames did die.

For they fully believed their bully brave boy could whip brave Morrissey;.

THE PRIMROSE by Robert Burns

Dost ask me, why I send thee here
This firstling of the infant year?
Dost ask me, what this primrose shews,
Bepearled thus with morning dews?—


The primrose is one of the first flowers to bloom in Scotland, in March. With "the infant year" Burns is probably alluding to the ancient Roman year having begun in March.

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer,

a naval song of the American Civil War
THE CUMBERLAND CREW

For the eighth day of March told a terrible story:
The most of our seamen to the swells made acclaim;
Our flag it was wrapt in a mantle of glory
By the heroic deeds of the Cumberland crew.

On the eighth day of March, about ten in the morning,
The sky it was cloudless and bright shone the sun,
When the drum on the Cumberland sounded the warning
Which told every seaman to stand by his gun;

several videos on youtube, including
The 97th Regiment String Band
Although they sing "on that ill-fated day, about 10 in the morning," they do sing the eighth day of March in the previous verse.
