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.

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,

THE DUNNE’S STORE STRIKE

Written by Sandra Kerr
Performed by:
- Sandra Kerr on Yellow, Red and Gold;
- Rebel Voices on Warning: Women at Work (American duo, my favourite version)
Christy Moore   
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TER_M3KNVCE

"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

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

SLIEVENAMON

Frank McGrath wrote at Mudcat thread "Info on "Slieve na mBan"
"The line "To see our flag unrolled"... the Irish Tricolour, our national flag ... was unrolled for the first time on Slievenamon on the 16th July in 1848 by Thomas Francis Meagher at an enormous protest/rebellion meeting. The flag was inspired by the French Tricolour and signifies peace "White" between the "Green" nationalists and "Orange" the followers of William of Orange or Unionists."

Tom Finn sang Kickham's "Slievnamon" at the online Courthouse Session tonight, 16 July 2021. Tom gave much the same information in his introduction and said that Kickham himself was present at the rally where the future national flag of Ireland, the tricolour, was first raised.

(Not to be confused with another song Sliabh na mBan, which was composed in Ireland but has also been translated to English. Sliabh na mBan, transliterated as Slievenamon, means the Mountain of the Women, and it is an actual mountain in south County Tipperary.)

you are doing some very good research here.

thanks.

I do not know any August songs - for next month, I guess ppl were too busy harvesting, drinking and reproducing in that month for any songs to be made.

May is still the best song month by far.

The Jarvey Was A Leprechaun, recorded by the pretty un-cool Val Doonican, is a nonsense tour of Ireland, including the line "They heard him say that Galway Bay was frozen in July" [for clarity, it isn't actually: that's the point!]/mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=7080#42517. Jez Lowe wrote "The Wrong Bus" for the WW1 commemorations, mentioning Passchendale. Can find no musical links to it, outwith Mudcat or within [all search results are too early, leading to folks who've used the 3 words in the chat]. Robb Johnson did a ?trilogy of CDs about his own grandfather's/great-uncle's involvement there, and surely Coope, Boyes & Simpson have stuff in their repertoire on Passchendale.

THE MOWER     aka     The Buxom Lass

As I went out one morning on the fourteenth of July
I met a maid and I asked her age and she gave me this reply:
“I have a little meadow, I've kept for you in store
And it's only due, I should tell you true, it never was mowed before.”

BOYNE WATER    https://mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=5975

July the First in Ouldbridge Town there was a grievous battle
Where many a man lay on the ground by cannons that did rattle;
King James he pitched his tents between the lines for to retire,
But King William threw his bombballs in and set them all on fire.

LURGAN TOWN     https://mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=3789
Oh Lurgan town's an altered town,
Since papish Hancock he came to it
If ye walk on the twelfth day of July,
Ye may depend he'll make you rue it,

THE OULD ORANGE FLUTE    https://mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=3789
On the twelfth of July as it yearly did come
Bob played on the flute to the sound of the drum

THE SASH MY FATHER WORE https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=23052#253477

It is old but it is beautiful, and its colors they are fine
It was worn at Derry, Aughrim, Enniskillen and the Boyne.
My father wore it as a youth in bygone days of yore
And on the Twelfth [of July] I love to wear the sash my father wore

On 14 July 2016, "Hank", a mixed breed pet dog, was seized in Belfast Northern Ireland under legislation which bans pit bull type dogs. Hank was neither the first nor the last dog to be seized under breed specific provisions of the Dangerous Dogs Act, but he was one of those who got the most publicity. Fortunately, Hank was spared the death penalty which many "of type" dogs receive. And fortunately, his case was adjudicated more quickly than many.

An horse fair at Newmarket was
And many bold gentlemen there did resort
And it's all for to see such lively sport

HENRY THE POACHER     aka     Van Diemen's Land (Roud 221)

'Twas on the Fourth of July, the day we made the land,
At four o'clock we went on shore all chain-ed hand in hand.
And to see our fellow sufferers, as I feel I can't tell how,
Some chained unto a harrow and some unto a plough.
