AN CHÉAD MHÁIRT DEN FHÓMHAR is an Irish lament about Páidí Ó Dónaill, who was drowned on the "First Tuesday of the Autumn"/the Harvest

as sung by Jerry Hicks (youtube)

http://seannos.tg4.ie/baile/amhranaithe/diane-ni-chanainn/an-chead-mhairt-de-fhomhar/ lyrics and singing of Diane Ní
The lyrics aren't on Mudcat yet, but there is a comment by Niall Comer at https://mudcat.org/Detail.CFM?messages__Message_ID=288750
Niall says that as far as he knows, Séamas O Dónaill composed the song in 1811 to lament the loss of his son. The two men were bringing home a bag of corn to make poitín with. The bag was too heavy so the men split it up. The father walked home with his portion, but the son was in a boat and he never reached to shore.Chanáinn

Geoff, could you move An Chéad Mháirt den Fómhair to the September thread. The first Tuesday of autumn would fall between 21 and 27 Sept. In 1811 the date would have been 24 Sept., if I'm not mistaken.
Done . Thank you, Felipa-Geoff

Here it is: written by Roy Williamson of The Corries: it doesn’t mention the date, but the history books will tell you that the battle was in September!

THE BATTLE OF PRESTONPANS                         Roy Williamson

The chevalier, being void of fear,
Did march up Birsley Brae, man,
Through Tranent, ere he did stint
As fast as he could gae, man.
General Cope did taunt and mock
Wi’ many a loud hussa, man,
But ere next morn proclaimed the dawn
We heard anither craw, man.

Chorus
General Cope led frae behind
Tae keep his men in order,
When the English ran, he was in the van
And first across the Border.

The brave Lochiel, as I heard tell
Led Camerons on in clouds man,
The morning fair, and clear the air
They loosed with devilish thuds man.
Down guns they threw, and swords they drew
And soon did chase them off, man,
On Seaton Crafts, they buffed their chafts
And gart them run like daft, man.                Chorus

Now Caddell dressed among the rest
Wi’ gun and guid claymore, man,
On gelding gray, he rade the day
Wi’ pistols set before, man.
The cause was good, he’d spend his blood
Before that he would yield, man,
But the night before, he left the corps,
And never faced the field, man.                Chorus

Now Simpson keen tae clear his een
O’ rebels far in wrong, man
Did never strive wi’ pistols five
But he galloped wi’ the throng, man,
Ower Sutra Hill, e’er he stood still
Before he tasted meat, man,
Monteith may brag, o’ his swift nag
That bore him aff sae fleet, man.                Chorus

The bluff dragoons swore blood and oons
They’d mak the rebels run, man,
Yet they flee, when them they see
And they winnae fire a gun, man,
They turned their back, their foot they brak,
Terror seized them a’, man,
Some wet their cheeks, some filled their breeks
And some for fear did fa’, man.                 Chorus

I note that Johnnie Cope was mentioned higher up the thread, and this week was the 276th anniversary of the Battle of Prestonpans. The late Davy Steele, who came from Prestonpans, sang it to a different tune from the well-known one.
And the Corries had a different song entirely, called “The Battle of Prestonpans”: ‘ll see if I can find it!

Well, we are getting towards the end of the month, so, if I may, I'll give you one that I co-wrote with friend April Caesar in a song-writing group a few years back, Misty September: it was inspired for me by driving down to our usual meeting place on a morning when it was very misty: we are quite high up in this part of Edinburgh, and often look down on a blanket of "haar" over the Firth of Forth, but on this occasions it was misty even at our level. April had a friend who emigrated to Australia, so there is reference to the longing to be back in Scotland in the lyrics. And, no, it doesn't all rhyme, and where it does, it follows different patterns, but that's just how it evolved! I also describe it as being a love song for Scotland.
If anyone wants the tune, I can send it as a pdf, or there is rather over-spotlighted YouTube of us singing it at Edinburgh Folk Club's annual song-writing competition: we didn't win anything!
April is not seen in the video as she was not able to get down on stage, but she was singing from the gallery!
Misty September


MISTY SEPTEMBER                 Trish Santer/April Caesar 14/11/14

Verse 1:
One day as I went walking, down the mountainside,
When I saw my sweetheart, coming o’er the brae,
I asked “Where are you going?”, and then he said to me,   
“Let’s see where this road takes us, this September day”.

Chorus 1:
Sunrise o’er the mountains, swiftly coursing streams,                
Shifting light on vibrant colours ever change the scene,
Can’t bear to leave my homeland, where my heart has always been,         
Scotland, I’ll be true to you, Scotland, in my dreams.

Verse 2 :
Soon the mist came rolling, down that mountainside,
Bubbled like a cauldron, chilled us to the bone,
But we climbed up higher, till we saw clear skies,      
Marvelled at the splendour of the land that is our home.

Chorus 2:
Sunset o’er the mountains, swiftly coursing streams,               
Shifting light on vibrant colours ever change the scene,
Can’t bear to leave my homeland, where my heart has always been,
Scotland, I’ll be true to you, Scotland, in my dreams.

Instrumental:

Chorus 3:
Dusk falls o’er the mountains, sparkling Milky Way,
Landscape silhouetted gauntly, since the close of day,
Stillness now surrounds me, more than I can say,
Scotland, I’m at home with you, Scotland, here I’ll stay,

Scotland, I’m at peace with you, Scotland, here I’ll stay.

Mysha, thanks for suggesting    RUN, COME SEE JERUSALEM

In the Mudcat thread to which you gave a link ‘Origins: History of 'Run, Come See Jerusalem' Azizi told us,
"Written by Blake Higgs (he recorded it in 1951), a Bahamian calypso singer who was well known for entertaining tourists in Nassau, this song has been covered by many American folk singers including The Weavers. It's about a devastating hurricane in the Bahamas in 1929 that caught people unaware and destroyed many ships. Alan Lomax documented another song also about the same store, called A Great Storm Pass Over, written by a Bahamian sponge fisherman called Tappy Joe; it was recorded in 1935."
And Charlie Baum told us that it was
“the 1929 Category 3 to 4 hurricane that swept over the Bahamas in late September.”

September Song (linked here to the Brothers Four) is also TRY TO REMEMBER
. There's a brief note in the list, but in fact it is a major song in The Fantasticks, which ran off-Broadway forever but was probably finally killed off by COVID-19.

Jerry Orbach sings "Try to Remember" in the off-Broadway version. From Wikipedia:

Try to Remember is a song from the musical comedy The Fantasticks. It is the first song sung in the show, to get the audience to imagine what the sparse set suggests. Its lyrics, written by Tom Jones, famously rhyme "remember" with "September", "so tender", and "December." Harvey Schmidt composed the music.

Try to Remember was originally sung by Jerry Orbach in the Original Off Broadway production of The Fantasticks. "Try To Remember" made the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart three times in 1965 in versions by Ed Ames, Roger Williams and the The Brothers Four. However, in 1975, Gladys Knight & The Pips had a huge international hit with their version of "Try to Remember," combining it into a medley with a cover of Barbra Streisand's The Way We Were. It reached #11 on the Hot 100 chart. In Knight's version, she recited some of the lyrics from "Try To Remember" in spoken-word fashion before beginning to sing "The Way We Were." The Greek singer Nana Mouskouri also recorded it in three languages: German, French, and Italian.

Try to Remember was also used in the soundtrack of the film The Man Who Fell to Earth, the video game Chrono Trigger, and the Hong Kong film City of Glass (Boli zhi cheng).

I remember the Man Who Fell To Earth use, though I only saw that movie once about 40 years ago. Something to look up for this list.

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?

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

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

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.

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.

Happy Birthday Lin. Some of the songs I have posted are a bit sombre for a birthday collection but I hope the collection is interesting.

To GeoffLawes,

I just wanted to thank you very much for all your work in listing alphabetically the September songs and all your other informative posts!! It is greatly appreciated! You are so kind!
From Lin (the September birthday girl)

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.

THE ROSES OF EYAM    by John Trevor

George Vicars was a tailor to the village life of Eyam
And to his house a case of clothes from London town was seen
To be delivered one fine day in September '65
And never more was tailor Vicars ever seen alive
Ever seen alive
