SONGS ABOUT BUFFALO HUNTING
July 4, 1882 - The "Last Great Buffalo Hunt" began on Indian reservation lands near Hettinger, North Dakota . 2,000 Teton Sioux Indians killed about 5,000 buffalo. By this time, most of the estimated 60-75 million buffalo in America had been killed by white hunters who usually took the hides and left the meat to rot. By 1883, the last of the free-ranging buffalo were gone.

THE GREAT COMPROMISE     by John Prine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2okOuZ8T_o
Great Compromise

I knew a girl who was almost a lady
She had a way with all the men in her life
Every inch of her blossomed in beauty
And she was born on the fourth of July

Well she lived in an aluminum house trailer
And she worked in a juke box saloon
And she spent all the money that I give her
Just to see the old man in the moon

I used to sleep at the foot of old glory
And awake in the dawn's early light
But much to my surprise when I opened my eyes
I was a victim of the great compromise

This song is John Prine's comment on America and the Vietnam War. He was drafted into the Army in late 1966, just as the Vietnam War was heating up. But instead of being sent to Vietnam, he ended up in Stuttgart, West Germany, where he worked as a mechanical engineer. Prine played down his military service, describing his contribution as “drinking beer and pretending to fix trucks.”

"And she spent all the money that I give her, Just to see the old man in the moon" refers to NASA and the space project Apollo.

youtube Rob Athanas 5 years ago
"I knew a girl who was almost a lady"...This song came out a couple of years prior to America's bicentennial, hence, "almost a lady".
"Every inch of her blossomed in beauty, she was born on the 4th of July". when America would be 200 yrs. old, thus, a lady.
at the end, "Well she sends all the fella's love letters, saying greetings come and see me real soon..." your draft notice, if you received one, started out, "greetings, you have been inducted into the United States Army".
the lining up in a bar room is what you did the night before being shipped off to boot camp.
too much to cover it all, but one of the all time greatest songs to disguise the meaning.

TUMBLING THROUGH THE HAY

It being in the month of July in the rosy time of the year,
Down by yon flowery meadows where the waters does run clear,


Len Graham sings "Tumbling through the Hay"

In the early hours of July 4, 1925, a dilapidated Boston hotel collapsed, killing 44 of the partiers in the Pickwick Club, a speakeasy on the second floor. It is generally said that the building was brought down by the rhythmic vibrations from the crowd dancing the Charleston (to the sound of "12th Street Rag" played by McGlennon's jazz band). The following year, Arthur Fields (under the name Bob Thomas) recorded "The Pickwick Club Tragedy." To my ears, the usual mix of sentiment and moralizing goes beyond mawkish to bathetic in this composition. The Boston-based folksinger Tony Saletan included it on the 1970 album Folk Songs and Ballads; Tony does sound like he's having a hard time taking the song seriously as he sings!

THE ARGUMENT OF HIS BOOK
Robert Herrick- 1591-1674

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers,
Of April, May, of June, and July flowers.
I sing of Maypoles, hock carts, wassails, wakes,
Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes...


================
July used to be pronounced like the name Julie. All you have to do now is make up a tune. Herrick's most famous poem is "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may."

July gets a mention in the refrain of Texas Gladden's version of "Old Kimball," and it's not on the list, so:

Old Kimball was a grey nag, old Nellie was a brown,
Old Kimball beat old Nellie on the very first go-round,

CHO:
And I see, and I see
On the first day of July

THE DUNNE’S STORE STRIKE

Written by Sandra Kerr
Performed by:

- Rebel Voices on Warning: Women at Work (American duo, my favourite version)
Christy Moore

"On 18 July 1984, Mary Manning, a shop worker in the Henry Street, Dublin (Ireland) outlet of Dunnes Stores, refused to handle the sale of grapefruit from South Africa."

More details about the Strike here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunnes_Stores_strike

https://www.historyworkshop.org.uk/anti-apartheid-in-ireland-the-dunnes-stores-strike-1984-87/

It was in the month of sweet July in 1984
The scene was set in Dublin, in Dunne's Department Store
The supermarket's busy, the registers make a din
The groceries go rolling out, the cash comes rolling in!

Mary manning was sitting at the till not thinking any harm
When a customer comes up to her with a basket on her arm
The content of that basket, Mary's destiny will shape
For it bears the dreaded label: Produce of The Cape

"Oh I can't check out your oranges missus, won't you take them back,
For they come from South Africa where white oppresses black,
Our Union says don't handle them it's the least that we can do,
You'll know what opression is if you are Irish too"

For I'd have it on me conscience and I couldn't sleep at night
If I helped support a system that denied to blacks their rights"
The managers were called, the ones that wear the suits
And Mary was suspended 'cause she wouldn't touch the fruits

But her friends were all behind her and the union gave support
They struck, they picketed the boss was overwrought
He said "I'll not be dictated to on what is bought and sold!
These women are only workers they should do as they are told"

"That's typical", said the strikers, "of apartheid's cruel law,
It's not just in South Africa where rich oppresses poor.
Ben Dunne won't have a boycott, he'd sooner have the curse.
He couldn't care less how he fills his shelves as long as he lines his purse"

Now Clery's in O'Connell Street they won't sell racist shoes
Best Man returned their clothes and Roches sent back all their booze
"'Til all South African goods are taken off the shelves at Dunne's,
You'll find us down in Henry Street, sticking to our guns!"

"Apartheid", said the strikers, "is the law of slavery,
A cruel and immoral crime against humanity.
We've learnt about our system too and now we know the score
If we go back we'll never take the sh*t we took before"

The praises they came rolling in from all around the world
For such concern and sacrifice and courage brave and bold
When 14 months were over 10 women and a man
Had changed the minds and consciences and hearts of Ireland

true enough, I just renamed it in memory of the place and not the girl. Flower of Magherally , Ta mo chleanas a dheanamh, Diarmuid and Grainne . The galway shawl - The unattanable holy grail girls of Irish music folklore. The Rose of Tralee.

Contrast with the more realistic Lillibulero.

That is probably a new thread though

I am upset by an obvious miss. I used to sing the Banbridge Town song, and of course it is a July song, how did I miss that ? I think it is because I do not have any CDs of music that include that song so it has faded.

At the harvest fair she'll be surely there....

Sip on a pint of Guiness and forget the girl is my advice.
