Can you suggest any songs associated with the month of September ie: (A) Any songs with September in the title (B) Any songs with a September date given in the lyrics (C) Any songs referencing an event that is known to have occurred in September 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.

This is an edited PermaThread moderated by Geoff Lawes.

Below is an alphabetical index of the titles collected in this thread so far.

If you just want to add a new post to this thread use the “Post to this thread” or POST buttons 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

WASN'T THAT A MIGHTY STORM

cho: Wasn't that a mighty storm
Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning, well
Wasn't that a mighty storm
That blew all the people all away.

The song commemorates the Galveston flood of September 1900, the greatest natural loss of life in the US at the time.

The DT has another version of the song:

GALVESTON FLOOD

It was a September evening when the sky was dark and grey
Raging wind and water battled Hell in its sway
The rich folk in the mansions and the poor ones in the dell
Were swept into eternity the story left to tell

THE HEIGHTS OF ALMA

Ye loyal Britons, pray give ear
Unto the news I bring you here
While joy each Briton's heart doth cheer
For the vict'ry gained at Alma
'Twas on September the eighteenth day
In spite of dashing salt sea spray,
We landed safe in the Crimea
Upon our route for Alma.

THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.

The song was written by Frances Scott Key during the
attack of the British on Fort McHenry, September 13, 1814.

HOUSEWIFE'S LAMENT

In fall the leaves litter, in muddy September

(Don Lange)

I never knew my grandad, he was always on the bum
Every September he'd get on the Southbound and ride
Then round about Christmas, me and my brother
We'd get a few coins in the mail we'd go and spend them,
They were all he could send from that Mexico City jail

RIVER DRIVE by David Calder.


From Indian Pond down to the Forks it's white water most of the way
Riding them leaky bateaux, I don't think it's worth the pay
From the Forks down through Carratunk we're over the Wyman Dam
By the first week in September we're headed for the Solon Dam.


[There's also a mention of November, two stanzas later.]

Bill Destler - September Song    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H88xRIueRyg

Chorus] Sing back September Sky
There's only You and I
Yesterday she called to say she's free
Tired of being alone
She's on the road back home
And Lord it's time you had a song for me

[Bridge]
Once I had her heart and let it go
Now she's coming back and now I know

[Verse 1]
Stay up September snow
Soon I will let you go
Morning she'll be almost home again I asked her over today
Soon I will ask her to stay
And nothing we could do could hurt us then
Crying she had once walked out the door
Now she's coming back to try once more

[Verse 2]
Throw back September's time
Give me the only kind
Seems to know the troubles I've been through
I've been along before
Don't want it anymore
By morning time, I'll have a song for you
Yes I'm going to have a song for you
Singing is the only thing to do

16th September, 2003 Death of Baha Mousa in Basra

ORDINARY ENGLISH LADS
1.When Baha Mousa was twenty six,
The life from him was torn,
He was beaten and kicked in a Basra jail,
By young men in uniform.

ChorusAnd those who’ve known the soldiers well,
Such as neighbours, mums and dads,
Would say that at home in England,
They were ordinary English lads.

2.As the sun rose over the small hotel,
Where Baha’s living was made,
A squad of a Lancashire Regiment came,
On an early morning raid.
Chorus
3.The place was searched, some guns were found,
And the staff was all detained,
To be taken away, in handcuffs,
For the guns to be explained.
Chorus
4.So Baha came to an army post,
And was placed in a holding cell,
He was hooded and stressed, and deprived of sleep,
He was beaten and kicked as well.
Chorus
5.His food and water, sleep and rest,
Were all kept in short supply,
While screams of abuse and death threats,
Were used freely to terrify.
Chorus
6.They broke his nose and they cracked his ribs,
They smashed him against the wall,
When his heart gave out, Baha’s injuries,
Numbered ninety three in all.
Chorus
7.A corporal got one year in jail,
But true justice was denied,
For ranks closed around the guilty,
And most witnesses simply lied.
Chorus

To be delivered one fine day in September '65

Starting September 01, I am going to listen to a few Sept. songs each day leading up to my birthday on the 22nd.
Kind of like to do this as I spend the birthday alone and now will have all these wonderful September songs to listen to, to keep me company.

Thanks to everyone so far who have added songs and information to the September song list.

Hi Geoff,
I've always been drawn to the sombre songs or songs with primarily minor chords. I know that is strange perhaps.
I remember when I was a little kid really liking the song "Patches" which was a very sombre song. Then really loving the song, "Catch the Wind" by Donovan when I was about 12 or so. Of course there are plenty of songs I like that are not sombre at all and have major chords but there is just something about those minor chords in songs that I like the most.

Anyone remember that dark lyric song, "Patches?"
From the early 1960's I believe?
Oh yeah, "Puff the Magic Dragon";used to make me cry too when I was a kid - but still loved the song. I wanted to find that cove and be the dragon's friend when Jackie Paper came no more. Well...I was just a little kid and felt so sad for the dragon.

I learned this in the second grade:

Goldenrods and asters, all your hands can hold -
September wears a party dress of lavender and gold.

That's the whole thing. The tune was ugly, so make up a new one.

Stephen Biko, South African activist, died 12 Sept. 1977
I just heard Bill Rolston sing "Biko" at the Sept. meeting of the Sunflower folk club (Belfast, Northern Ireland via Zoom)

BIKO by Peter Gabriel

September '77
Port Elizabeth weather fine
It was business as usual
In police room 619
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
-The man is dead

When I try to sleep at night
I can only dream in red
The outside world is black and white
With only one colour dead
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
-The man is dead

You can blow out a candle
But you can't blow out a fire
Once the flames begin to catch
The wind will blow it higher
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
-The man is dead

And the eyes of the world are
Watching now
Watching now

Another Biko song, performed by Holly Near & Ronnie Gilbert.


BIKO     (Holly Near & Ronnie Gilbert )
Biko!Biko!Biko!
Here comes Stephen Biko
Walking down the road
Hey, Hey, whatcha gonna do with Biko, Biko, Biko

Waters of fear and hatred
Waters of starving babies
Hey, Hey, whatcha gonna do with Biko, Biko, Biko

Come all the way from Capetown
To Wilmington North Carolina
Hey, Hey, whatcha gonna do with Biko, Biko, Biko

You can break one human body
See ten thousand Bikos
Hey, Hey, whatcha gonna do with Biko, Biko, Biko

Here comes Stephen Biko
Walking down the road
Hey, Hey, whatcha gonna do with Biko, Biko, Biko


Lyrics from all over the world on l-hit.com    https://l-hit.com/en/1564422

Oliver Cromwell died 3 Sept 1658

There's a song on Mudcat
https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=95986#3840319

OLIVER CROMWELL LAY BURIED AND DEAD
(Trad)


Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead,
Hee-haw, buried and dead,
There grew an old apple-tree over his head,
Hee-haw, over his head.

The apples were ripe and ready to fall,
Hee-haw, ready to fall,
There came an old woman to gather them all,
Hee-haw, gather them all.

Oliver rose and he gave her a drop,
Hee-haw, gave her a drop,
Which made the old woman go hippety hop,
Hee-haw, hippety hop.

The saddle and bridle, they lie on the shelf,
Hee-haw, lie on the shelf,
If you want any more your can sing it yourself,
Hee-haw, sing it yourself.

-- but the dead person in variants of the song varies

Can you suggest a better song or two for the occasion?
