When I am dead
And over me bright April
Shakes out her rain-drenched hair
Though you should lean Above me broken-hearted
I shall not care

On a Friday, it fell in the month of April,
O'er the hill came the morn' with the blithe sunny smile,
And the folks they were throngin' the roads everywhere,
Makin' haste to be in at Copshawholme Fair.

"Bedtime Story," written by Jan Harmon, recorded by Anne Dodson on From Where I Sit in 1993. Video Dodson writes: "'Bedtime Story' is actually a four-part choral piece, but since I can't carry a chorus around with me, I put the bass, tenor, and alto parts on the guitar and sing the soprano."

BEDTIME STORY
Jan Harmon

Once upon a time I caught a glimpse of April
Like a spear of sunlight on a January morning
I closed myself as petals, but the light unclosed me
There so deep in darkness

Nothing, even starlight, has such tiny fingers
Stones reach out and whisper to each other without warning
And nothing, even wisdom, is as kind as roses
Or so rare and reckless

So sleep, my dearie
'Neath the dream horse hooves
I will give you, in a wreath of leaves
Bedtime stories, wishes tossed
Like flashing pennies by lovers
.

The Battle of Shiloh, also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing, took place from April 6 to April 7, 1862, and was one of the major early engagements of the American Civil War
SHILOH HILL
Shillo Hill- Bobby Horton    
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6plG_wgraF8
Wikipedia: Battle of Shiloh     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Shiloh

Battle of Shiloh Hill

Come all you gallant soldiers, a story I will tell
About the bloody battle on top of Shiloh's hill
It was an awful struggle; it'll cause your heart to chill
All from the bloody battle on top of Shiloh's hill.

Was on the sixth of April about the break of day
The drums and fifes were playin' for us to march away
My feelings at that moment I do remember well
When first my feet went tramping on top of Shiloh's hill

Was about the hour of sunrise the battle it began
Before the fight was over, we fit them hand to hand
And the hollers of the battle did my heart with anguish fill
For the sick and the dying on top of Shiloh's hill

Was early the next morning we fit the fight again
Unmindful of the wounded; unuseful to the slain
The cannon smoke did hide the sun, 10,000 was the kill
And streams of blood went running on the top of Shiloh's hill

My uniform of blue was turned to a purplish red
When someone on a coming steed did strike me on the head
I sent a bullet to his heart and as he fell away
I saw the face of my father dressed in bloody gray

Although we won the battle, my heart is filled with pain
The one that brought me to this life I'll never see again
I pray to the lord consistent with his will
Lord save the souls of them poor boys that died on Shiloh's hill.

And July in hir eyes hath place;
With in hir bosome is September,
But in her heart a could December.

Aprill is in my mistris face written by Thomas Morley is one of the best-known and shortest of English madrigals; it was published in 1594, and appears to be based on an Italian text by Livio Celiano, set by Orazio Vecchi in 1587.

THE BALLAD OF BARNEY GRAHAM
Della Mae Graham

On April the thirtieth
Nineteen thirty-three
Upon the streets of Wilder
They shot him brave and free

They shot my darling father
He fell upon the ground
'Twas in the back they shot him
His blood came streaming down

They took the pistol handles
And beat him on the head
The hired gunmen beat him
'Til he was cold and dead

When he left home that morning
I though he'd soon return
But for my darlin' father
My heart shall ever yearn

We carried him to the graveyard
There we laid him down
To sleep in death for many a year
In the cold and sodden ground

Although he left the union
He tried so hard to build
His blood was spilled for justice
And justice guides us still

Liner notes from Hedy West, Old Times and Hard Times:

This elegy was written by teen-age Della Mae Graham for
her father, who was president of the United Mineworker's Union
local in Wilder. One Sunday morning Barney Graham was walking
along the dirt road that was Wilder's main street, and as he
passed the company store, two gun thugs shot and killed him.
The community was so tightly controlled by the mine owners
that no local preacher dared preach at the funeral of the dead
union man; instead, the oration was preached by divinity students
from Nashville. "The tune I sing here is from John Greenway' s
American Folk Songs of Protest which doesn't explain its source.
When Daddy knew Della Mae Graham, she recited this poem and had
no written tune."

The song also appears as Track 20 on Pete Seeger, American Industrial Ballads.

Recording by Hedy West.

Tony Rose sang 'Twas on One April Morning on his 1976 LP On Banks of Green Willow. He commented in the album's sleeve notes:

The village of Cowley, near Exeter, awakens boyhood memories on three counts — it was the terminus of the old “F” bus route, my mum's favourite picnic spot, and a superb vantage point from which to behold the Great Western Railway in all its majesty!

Last year I discovered it was also where Priscilla Wyatt-Edgell collected 'Twas on One April Morning from Mr R. Bryant.

This is a song I wrote for the April song swap of the Paint Creek Folklore Society of Rochester (near Detroit), Michigan (not sure what year it was, maybe 1996 or 97). We have a theme every month and it was "April Fool". I'd had an idea in mind for weeks without having time to sit down and try to write anything, but the drive to the meeting took about 20 minutes, so I composed it in my head as I drove there. (Don't think I'd be able to do it all in my head now, sadly!)

APRIL FOOL

© ~1997 Vikki Appleton Fielden

Come sit ye down beside me and hear my sorry tale
And if you have a mind to, you might purchase me an ale
Me heart is sick and weary and me pride is hurtin' bad
And if you listen, you will hear the time that I have had.

    Chorus:
    And there's no fool like an April fool
    I thought I'd learned me lessons
    But now I'm back in school
    And there's no fool like an April fool
    So I'll just drink and sit and think
    How love can be so cruel.


Now I was just a fool for love -- I guess I lost me head
But she was young and pretty and she winked at me and said
Come sit ye down beside me and we'll have a drink or two
Her charms were irresistible... what else was I to do?

Chorus

We passed a lovely evening there and when she asked me in
I knew that luck was with me (or perhaps it was the gin)...
The next thing I remember I was lyin' in the street
Without a stitch of clothing or the shoes upon me feet.

Chorus

So now, your Honour, here I stand, and now I comprehend
Not every lass who smiles at you is bound to be a friend
So if you'll take a tip from me concernin' lovin's game
Don't trust a girl who tells you, Sir, that April is her name...

For there's no fool like an April fool (etc.)


Note: Sometimes I start the chorus with "And" instead of "For", usually on verse 3.

Sorry, no link to a video, but if anyone would like an mp3 with the melody, PM me.

Mr Cooney wrote 14 songs for the theatre piece - Rising Up Peterloo 2019 - seven about the events of 1819 and seven about 2019. His song about Ms McKee was among those eventually chosen and performed.

The song's lyrics include the lines: "Was early early in the spring/ All the birds did sweetly sing/ They changed their notes from tree to tree/ And they sang for Lyra McKee".

Mr Cooney said the producers behind the Peterloo show posted a video of his song about Ms McKee, sung by Lucy Farrell, Jim Molyneux and Sam Carter, on YouTube. Lyra McKee

My only son was shot in Dublin,
Fighting for his country bold,
He fought for Ireland,and Ireland only,
The harp the shamrock,green white and gold “

APRIL MAY
Lou and Peter Berryman, of Madison Wisconsin, have a song called "April May". April = name of month, and May = verb, in this instance.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xC4NVcMujg

The February sun it didn't
turn the lawn to mud but April May
The warmer wind of March it didn't
bloom a single bud but April May
There are little lumps of February
down behind the bed
Winter wasn't wonderland like
everybody said
March it didn't melt away the
blizzard in my head but April May

NARROW BOATS TO TOW
© Barry Goodman 2008

has a verse

And as I walk the towpath on a glowing April morning,
The brasses on my harness flashing brightly in the sun,
I think about those horses who by fortune’s fickle calling
Are taken far away to pull a gun.
