v1 of I REMEMBER by Molly Drake

We tramped the open moorland in the rainy April weather
And came upon the little inn that we had found together
The landlord gave us toast and tea and stopped to share a joke
And I remember firelight
I remember firelight
I remember firelight
And you remember smoke

24 April On this day in 1965: The Pennine Way – 250 miles from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm on the Scottish border – was officially opened.

Pete Coe sang his own song The Pennine Way in 1989 on his LP A Right Song and Dance;

Want of employment causes me to roam
Far from the valley where I have made my home,
Like many a one before me returning when I may,
Just another pilgrim on the Pennine Way.

WRECK OF THE OLD ‘49
Well, I'll sing you a song 'bout the old Forty Nine
The fastest engine on the Santa Fe line
On the fourteenth of April, she made a desp'rate dash
And she got there on time and she did not crash!

Six Irish convicts, sentenced to fourteen years deportation to Western Australia, were whisked away by the American whaler, The Catalpa, in April of 1876.

THE CATALPA
(Trad.) (usually sung to the tune of Rosin the Bow)

A noble whale ship and commander
Was called the Catalpa, they say,
She came out to Western Australia
And took six poor Fenians away

Chorus:
So come all you screws, warders and jailers
Remember Perth Regatta Day.
Take care of the rest of your Fenians
Or the Yankees will steal them away.

Seven long years they had served here
And seven long more had to stay,
For defending their country, old Ireland.
And for that they were banished away.

You kept them in Western Australia
Till their hair began to turn grey,
When a Yank from the States of America
Came out here and stole them away. Chorus

Now all the Perth boats were a-racing,
And making short tacks for the spot;
But the Yankee tacked into Fremantle
And took the best prize of the lot.

The Georgette gave chase with bold warriors
With orders the Yanks to arrest
But she hoisted her star-spangled banner
Saying “You will not board me, I guess.” Chorus

Now they've landed safe in America
And there will be able to cry,
“Hoist up the green flag and the shamrock.
Hurrah, for old Ireland we'll die.”

Many recordings on the web. Here's one by Raymond Crooke:

THE DEATH OF LITTLE KATHY FISCUS

April 8, 1949, Kathy Fiscus, a three-year-old girl died after falling into a well in San Marino, California. The failed rescue attempt received nationwide attention in the US as it was carried live on radio and on television.
   
On April the 8th, the year '49,
Death claimed a little child, so pure and so kind.
Kathy they called her, met her doom that day.
I know it was God that called her away.

How 'bout SO LONG IT'S BEEN GOOD TO KNOW YUH (Woody Guthrie)?

I've sung this song, and I'll sing it again
Of the place where I lived, on the wild windy plain
In a month called April, a county called Gray
Here is what all of the people there say: (Well, it's...)

The one Dust Bowl Ballad that mentions the date of the great dust storm of 1935:


THE GREAT DUST STORM
(Dust Storm Disaster)

On the 14th day of April of 1935,
There struck the worst of dust storms that ever filled the sky.
You could see that dust storm comin', the cloud looked deathlike black,
And through our mighty nation, it left a dreadful track.

From Oklahoma City to the Arizona line,
Dakota and Nebraska to the lazy Rio Grande,
It fell across our city like a curtain of black rolled down,
We thought it was our judgement, we thought it was our doom.

The radio reported, we listened with alarm,
The wild and windy actions of this great mysterious storm;
From Albuquerque and Clovis, and all New Mexico,
They said it was the blackest that ever they had saw.

From old Dodge City, Kansas, the dust had rung their knell,
And a few more comrades sleeping on top of old Boot Hill.
From Denver, Colorado, they said it blew so strong,
They thought that they could hold out, but they didn't know how long.

Our relatives were huddled into their oil boom shacks,
And the children they was cryin' as it whistled through the cracks.
And the family it was crowded into their little room,
They thought the world had ended, and they thought it was their doom.

The storm took place at sundown, it lasted through the night,
When we looked out next morning, we saw a terrible sight.
We saw outside our window where wheat fields they had grown
Was now a rippling ocean of dust the wind had blown.

It covered up our fences, it covered up our barns,
It covered up our tractors in this wild and dusty storm.
We loaded our jalopies and piled our families in,
We rattled down that highway to never come back again.

Woody Guthrie

THE LOSS OF THE ALBION
April 22, 1822.

It was the first of April from New York we set sail,
Kind Neptune did protect us with a sweet and pleasant gale
Until about the twentieth a storm then did arise,
The raging billows loud did roar and dismal were the skies

28 April On this day in 1789 the crew of HM Armed Vessel Bounty, led by Fletcher Christian, mutinied in the Friendly Islands in the South Seas, eventually settling on Pitcairn Island.

In 1985, David Essex co-wrote and starred as Fletcher Christian in the West End musical Mutiny! based on the novel Mutiny on the Bounty by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall. The score produced two more hit singles, including TAHITI , his tenth Top 10 success.

HARRY BELAFONTE SONGS
Sky News, 25 April 2023; Harry Belafonte, the singer and actor who became a civil rights activist, has died at 96. Reluctantly nicknamed "The King of Calypso", he was largely responsible for bringing Caribbean music to an international audience in the 1950s, and the first singer - in any genre - to sell a million records in a year.

Just last year, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, becoming the oldest person ever to receive the honour. Alongside his sparkling Hollywood career, he was a committed activist, working closely with Martin Luther King Jr during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

The Sultana, Art Thieme. Tune: "Blue Mountain Lakes” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADW7JhfmVz0

It was April 24th of 1865.
On the Father of Waters, side-wheelers did glide.
From New Orleans to St. Louis town,
Right on her schedule, she glided on down.
       Burning down, down, down. Burning down.

She landed at Memphis on April 26th,
Gave care to the wounded and care to the sick.
Some stronger soldiers unloaded her hold,
Carried out canned goods and bodies so cold.
       Burning down, down, down. Burning down.

The steamboat Sultana, built for 376 passengers, was severely overcrowded at Vicksburg with over 1,953 paroled Union solder/prisoners, 22 guards from the 58th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, over 70 fare-paying cabin passengers, and 85 crew members, for a total of 2,130 people. Seven miles above Memphis, the patched boilers exploded and fire ensued. The official death count by the United States Customs Service was 1,547.

THE DANCE OF THE CHERRY TREES recorded, and presumably written by, John Spillane.

Loveliest of Trees A. E. Housman - 1859-1936

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

From Loveliest of Trees by Polly Bolton Band 1996 SHEPHERD MUSIC SHEP CD 01
A setting of poems taken from "A Shropshire Lad" by A.E. Housman.

19 April On this day in 1775: In Lexington, Massachusetts, the opening shot was fired – by a British general – in the United States War of Independence. This was the shot “heard around the world”.

CONCORD HYMN (original title "Hymn: Sung at the Completion of the Concord Monument, April 19, 1836") is a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson written for the 1837 dedication of an obelisk monument in Concord, Massachusetts, commemorating the battles of Lexington and Concord, a series of battles and skirmishes on April 19, 1775 which sparked the American Revolutionary War.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

At Concord's Independence Day celebration on July 4, 1837, it was first read, then sung as a hymn by a local choir using the then-familiar tune "Old Hundredth". Wikipedia

Concord Hymn performed by the Choir of First Parish Church Concord,Ma.

SONGS ABOUT THE SHOOTING OF LORD LEITRIM
2nd April 1878. Lord Leitrim assassinated in the north of County Donegal in Ireland .

Ye men from Tipperary, have ye heard from Donegal,
How Rory and his gallant men caused Lord Leitrim's sad downfall?
It was on the second of April in the year of seventy-eight.
I hope the youth of Ireland will keep memory of that date.

2 April 1801   The Battle of Copenhagen of 1801 , also known as the First Battle of Copenhagen to distinguish it from the Second Battle of Copenhagen in 1807, was a naval battle in which a British fleet fought and defeated a smaller force of the Dano-Norwegian Navy anchored near Copenhagen.

Draw near, ye gallant seamen, while I the truth unfold
Of as gallant a naval victory as ever yet was told.
The second day of April last, upon the Baltic main,
Parker, Nelson, and their brave tars fresh laurels there did gain.
