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

SWEET WILLIAM’S GHOST

Many recordings of Sweet William's Ghost on YouTube   
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Sweet+William%27s+Ghost

Margaret lay on a fine feather bed
The Halloween drew near
When a dreadful form came to her room
And to her did appear.

"Are you my father the king" she said
"Are you my brother John
Or are you my truelove William
From Scotland coming home?"

"I'm not your father the king" he said
"I'm not your brother John
But I am your truelove William
From Scotland I've returned?"

"Margaret, Lady Margaret" he said
"In love, in charity
Will you give me back the plighted troth
That once, love, I gave thee."

"No I'll not give you back your plighted troth
Nor any other thing
Until you take me to your father's house
Where oft-times I have have been."

He's taken her to his father's house
And as they did enter in
The gates swung open at their own free will
To let young William in.

"Margaret, Lady Margaret" he said
"In love, in charity
Will you give me back the plighted troth
That once, love, I gave thee."

"No I'll not give you back your plighted troth
Nor any other thing
Until you take me to the chapel hall
And marry me with a ring."

He's taken her to the chapel hall
And as they did enter in
The locks flew asunder at their own free will
To let young William in.

"Margaret, Lady Margaret" he said
"In love, in charity
Will you give me back the plighted troth
That once, love, I gave thee."

She took the cross from around her neck
And laid it on his breast
Saying "Take you back your plighted troth
And in Heaven your soul find rest."

Silent stood the red red cock
But loudly called the grey
"It is time for the living to depart the dead
And so you must away."

HALLOWEEN    by The Singing Postman

The Singing Postman – Halloween   
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-ogTQqP6NQ

Some folks say by the light of the day
They don't believe tha's true
That folks will roam, far from their home
And the witches make their brew
Dew you go where the lights are low
They don't seem quite so keen
And they don't dare, go anywhere
On the night of Hallowe'en.

Now we all go down to the old churchyard
I dust you go inside
You're not far from the old hall beyond
Where the headless horsemen ride
Then you prick those doors seven times
And I know that you will scream
When the devil pops his head out the top
On the night of Hallowe'en.

Ghosts don't like nobody
They all make awful cries
They weep and moan, grunt and groan
And they don't like exorcise
See them walk through the castle walls
As though there's nothin' between
So don't you stray, too far away
On the night of Hallowe'en.

Now we all know Shuck he's a rare old dog
He likes to prowl around
Waiting for, down on the shore
The master who was drowned
His hair is black, his teeth are red
His eyes oh how they gleam
If he gets you, it's toodle-oo
On the night of Hallowe'en

THREE SCORE AND TEN

October's night left such a sight, was never seen before:
There was masts and spars and broken yards came floating to the shore.


But It seems that the folk process has had it's way with the facts since the original broadside poem was prefaced

“In memoriam of the poor Fishermen who lost their lives in the Dreadful Gale from Grimsby and Hull, Feb. 8&9, 1889”

Another "Hallowe'en" - from the poem by Violet Jacob, set to music by Jim Reid, and here sung by Sheena Wellington and Karine Polwart: it refers to the poet losing her son, Lachlan in WW1. Absolutely haunting.
Hallowe'en (Violet Jacob)

HALLOWE'EN words by Violet Jacob (1920)
Music, Jim Reid.

The tattie-liftin's nearly through,
They're plooin' whaur the barley grew
And efter dark roond ilka stack
You'll see the horsemen stand and crack
O Lachlan, but I mind on you.

I mind fu' aften we hae seen
Ten thoosand stars keek doon atween.
The naked branches, and below
Baith fairm and bothy hae their show
A-low wi' lichts o' Hallowe'en.

There's bairns wi' guys that's at their tail
Cloorin' the doors wi' runts o' kail
And fine you'll hear the screechs an' skirls
O' lassies wi' their drookit curls
Bobbin' for aipples i' the pail.

The bothy fire is loupin' heat.
A new heid-horseman's kist is set.
Richt's o'er the lamp whaur by the blaze
The auld yin stood that kept yer claes.
I cannae thole tae see it yet.

But gin the auld folks' tales are richt
An' ghaists cam hame on Hallow'n nicht,
Oh freend, oh freends, what would I gie
Tae feel yer rax yer hand tae me
Atween the dark an' coral licht!

Awa' in France across the wave,
The wee lichts burn on ilka grave
An' you an' me their lowes hae seen.
Ye'll maybe hae yer Hallowe'en
Yont whaur you're lyin' wi’ the lave.

There's drink an' daff an' sang an' dance,
An' ploys an' kisses get their chance,
But Lachlan, man, the place I see
Is whaur yer auld kist used tae be,
An' the lichts o' Hallowe'en in France.


[As sung by Jean Redpath on "Leaving the Land," 1990. Also recorded by The Sangsters on "Sharp & Sweet," 2001; and by Sheena Wellington on "Scots Women," 2001, as well as the video linked above.

Another favourite, by Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem, Tommy having written the song.
The Grey October Clouds

THE GREY OCTOBER CLOUDS
                        Tommy Makem

The summer birds have gathered on their journey to the sun,
I saw the wild geese heading South on their October run,
The last crop has been harvested and all the work is done,
And the grey October clouds go drifting by.
Chorus
Drifting by, drifting by, and the grey October clouds go drifting by.


At summer dawns I walked along by silver singing streams,
The lark song filled the early morn, and I could dream my dreams,
The good times passed so quickly, that was long ago it seems,
And the grey October clouds go drifting by…………..
Chorus

In memory’s field my fancies ran, wild flowers can be seen
On every hill and valley and meadows in between,
The leaves of brown came tumbling down from trees that once were green,
And the grey October clouds go drifting by………………
Chorus

In the summer of our lifetime, the skies seemed always blue,
We’d dream our dreams with youthful thoughts and hope that they’d come true,
Believe in all your youthful dreams and they’ll live on for you,
And the grey October clouds go drifting by…………………
Chorus x 2

And for anyone doing kids' Hallowe'en parties, here are a couple more less serious songs!

1. HALLOWE'EN (From Music Time for Brownies)


Tonight is the night when dead leaves fly
Like witches and switches across the sky
When elf and sprite flit through the night
Om a moony sheen, on a moony sheen.

Tonight is the night when leaves do sound
Like gnomes in their homes far beneath the ground,
When spooks and trolls creep out of holes,
Dark and mossy green, dark and mossy green.

Tonight is the night when pumpkins stare
Through brown sheaves and leaves almost everywhere,
When ghoul and ghost and goblin host
Dance round their queen, for it’s Hallowe’en.


(Suggested accompaniment for this is a spooky “wobble board”! or gentle use of a “thunder tube” might work)
The whole thing can be accompanied by a drone in A or B minor. Can supply the tune if anyone wants it.


2.
THE HALLOWE’EN QUARTERMASTER
                Trish Santer 24.10.06.
(You'll know the tune for this one, I guess!)

There were witches, witches, wearing stripy britches
In the stores, in the stores,
There were witches, witches, wearing stripy britches
In the quartermaster’s stores.

Chorus
My eyes are dim , I cannot see, I have not brought my specs with me,
I have not brought my specs with me.

There were rats, rats, big as tiger cats, etc.

There were spiders, spiders, drinking pints of cider, etc.

There were wizards, wizards, eating chicken gizzards, etc.

There were bats, bats, we were wearing them as hats, etc.

There were ghouls, ghouls, playing with garden tools, etc

There were pumpkins, pumpkins, brought in by some numpties, etc.

There were brooms, brooms, flying round the room, etc

There were ghosts, ghosts, bumping into posts, etc

Thanks Guest: I was even at that concert! It appeared as 2 separate clips on YouTube listings: very sorry for any duplication: but I know that Sheena has it, just herself, on one of her own CDs too!
What was slightly disappointing was not to find a YouTube of Jim Reid himself singing it: I'm sure I have it on one of his CDs. But the quoted version is great.

THE SINKING OF THE REUBEN JAMES by Woody Guthrie.

One hundred men were drowned in that dark watery grave
When that good ship went down, only forty four were saved
Twas the last day of October that we saved the forty four
From the cold icy water off the cold Iceland shore.

THE FAMOUS PIG SONG

(Clarke Van Ness, music by F. Henri Klickmann)

'Twas an evening in October, I'll confess I wasn't sober,
I was carting home a load with manly pride,
When my feet began to stutter and I fell into the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Then I lay there in the gutter and my heart was all a-flutter,
Till a lady, passing by, did chance to say:
"You can tell a man that boozes by the company he chooses,"
Then the pig got up and slowly walked away.

TURNING TOWARD THE MORNING
(Gordon Bok)

Now October's growing thin
And November's coming home;
You'll be thinking of the season
And the sad things that you've seen,
And you hear that old wind walking,
Hear him singing high and thin,
You could swear he's out there singing
Of your sorrow.

Columbus Day is celebrated (by some) on 12 October, commemorating his arrival in the West Indies on that date in 1492. Many songs make incidental mention of Columbus,
e.g.,SAUERKRAUT, by Lou & Peter Berryman, has a stanza,

Could you dump this ice out in the bathtub, can you dig it
Here we're dumping out the ice to make some room to make some more;
How'd you like a chicken that came over with Columbus?
Well I've got one here, Don't mention it, dear. That's what friends are for.

by Tom Lewis:

Columbus he set sail to find out if the world was round
He kept up sailing to the West until he ran aground
He thought he found the Indians but he found the USA

In answer to Geoff Lawes, no that's not Jim Reid singing in the YouTube link you gave: it's Daniel Kelly (as it says in the script accompanying the video!!) and he does make a nice job of it, though he has a deeper voice than Jim's.
You might like this track of Jim singing: the songs are seasonal anyway and include what is perhaps his best-known setting of a Violet Jacob poem - Norland Wind (aka The Wild Geese):

P.S. If you look further into the script accompanying Daniel Kelly's singing of "Hallowe'en" it seems he had the same problem of not being able to find a YouTube of Jim Reid singing it, but he has linked to some of the other versions already mentioned above. I'll have a look through my Jim Reid CDs to see if I can find it.

THE CASTLE OF DROMORE
The October winds lament
around the castle of Dromore
Yet peace is in her lofty halls
My loving treasure store

Though Autumn leaves may droop and die
a bud of spring are you sing hush-a-by
loo,la-lo,la lan
sing hush-a-by loo la lo

Bring no ill will to hinder us
my helpless babe and me dread spirits
of the blackwater clan owen's wild banshee
and Holy Mary pitying us in Heaven
for grace doth sue sing hush-a-by
loo,la-lo,la lan sing hush-a-by loo la lo

Take time to thrive my ray of hope
in the garden of Dromore
Take heed young eaglet
till thy wings are feathered fit to
soar a little rest and then the world
is full of work to do
sing hush-a-by loo,
la-lo,la lan sing hush-a-by loo la lo

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Come+Landlord+Fill+the+Flowing+Bowl

Come Landlord fill the flowing bowl Until it doth run over,
Come landlord fill the flowing bowl Until it doth run over,

CHORUS For tonight we'll merry merry be
For tonight we'll merry merry be
For tonight we'll merry merry be
Tomorrow we'll be sober.

The man who drinketh small beer And goes to bed quite sober,
Fades as the leaves do fade That drop off in October.

The man who drinketh strong beer And goes to bed right mellow,
Lives as he ought to live, And dies a jolly fellow.

But he who drinks just what he likes And getteth half seas over,
Will live until he die, perhaps, And then lie down in clover.

The man who kisses a pretty girl And goes and tells his mother,
Ought to have his lips cut off, And never kiss another.

The maiden who enjoys a kiss and comes back for another,
She's a boon to all mankind and soon to be a mother.

Come into the garden Maud And don't be so particular,
For if the grass is very very wet, We'll do it perpendicular.

If I had a pile of bricks I'd build my chimney higher.
That would stop the neighbour's cat from pissing in the fi-er.

The Bellringing Sung by Alan Rosevear in Exeter, Roud Number 1515. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gfxh49WAFvc

The Bellringing

One day in October, neither drunken nor sober,
O'er Broadbury Down I was mending my way,
When I heard of some ringing, some dancing and singing.
I'll always remember that Jubilee Day.

Chorus: 'Twas in Ashwater town, the bells they did sound,
They rang for a belt and a hat laced with gold.
And the men of Northlew rang so steady and true
That there never were better in Devon I hold.

'Twas misunderstood, for the men of Broadwood
Rang a peel on the tenor should never have been.
But the men of Northlew rang so steady and true,
A difficult matter to beat them I ween.
(Chorus)

Those of Broadwood being naughty, then said to our party,
We'll ring you a challenge again in a round.
We'll give you the chance in St. Stephen's by Launceston;
The prize to the winner a note of five pound.

Chorus: 'Twas in Callington town, the bells they did sound, etc.

So the match it went on, at good Callington,
And the bells they rang out o'er the valley below.
And the old and young people, the hale and the feeble,
They came out to hear the sweet bell music flow.

Chorus: 'Twas in Callington town, the bells they did sound, etc.

Those of Broadwood once more were obliged to give o'er,
They were beaten completely again in a round.
But the men of Northlew rang so steady and true;
No better than they in the West can be found.

Chorus: 'Twas in Ashwater town then in Callington Town, etc


Thank you GUEST,Derrick !

During last night's Zoom session of one of our local folk clubs, we were reminded that the Eyemouth tragedy took place during October. The singer had written her own song, of which I do not have the lyrics, but here is the late John Watt's song (copied from the DT)

EYEMOUTH TRAGEDY
(John Watt)

By the dire rocks o' Urquhart, though deadly were the signs
Out sailed the Eyemouth 'fyvies' with a thousand baited lines.
Though a glasslike sea and a cloudless sky made the elders bid them stay
But these are the times the brave men die, but the 'halflins" (?) held the sway.

Three leagues from the shore the lines were cast while the wind it held its breath
And the sails hung limp from every mast and the sea was still as death
For death was the bride that came that day, cut the ribbons from the creels
'Twas a raging wave hit Eyemouth town and took her bonny chiels.

There's many a bride has lost her groom as the death-toll quickly grew,
Craig's and Collin's met their doom,aye, Bargain and Fairbairn too
Maltman, Scott all Eyemouth bred, they died in the wind and rain
Oh, the flooer o' Eyemouth town lay dead, but her sons would rise again.

The grinding turn o' the hearse wheel in October '81
Made every man and woman kneel in prayer for Eyemouth's sons,
For this was the price they had to pay, the livin' and the dead
And the price that Eyemouth paid that day tae earn her daily bread.

One of the funniest versions of Tam o’Shanter that I have ever seen is as performed by The New Rope String Band. (The purist Burns scholars might not!) It is on YouTube in 2 sections, but the video doesn’t really do it justice : one of those where you really had to be there and see it live. There is some fiddling on it, but not really in the sense of setting the whole poem to a tune.
Here’s a link to part 1: Tam o’Shanter part 1

there is a Mudcat thread called "2 songs for 21 October". One of the songs is Grey October, which is already on the October song list. The other is called TAKING NELSON HOME and marks Trafalgar Day, when Horatio Nelson defeated the French and Spanish fleets off the coast of Spain in 1805. Lyrics are given on that thread for both songs. A commentator suggests Mike O'Connor's song "Carrying Nelson Home".

JOHN’S GARDEN
by Peter Mayer

Farmer John wandered back
And when he reached the pumpkin patch, began to speak
He said "the weather's getting colder
Summer's over and it's almost Halloween
That's the day, the reason you were raised
When everything about your life will change
You will have eyes to see, and for that night, you'll be
A bright lamp burning in the darkness
But remember that candle shines for only the briefest time
In a jack-o-lantern's heart"

The pumpkins held a meeting then
Some were very apprehensive and afraid
"Could this really happen to us?
What could be the meaning?" is what they were saying
"This is home, it's all we've ever known"
Then one bold, outspoken pumpkin spokeHe said
"I don't need eyes to see , it sounds like a lie to me
I like it just fine here in John's garden
And remember that candle shines for only the briefest time
In a jack-o-lantern's heart"

There is much to ask and to ponder in the pumpkin patch
When imposing old October shows up at last
Then a pumpkin from the farther end
Who had been silent up till then
Over the commotion, said
"What would you rather have my friends
A chance to shine, or die here on the vine?
The better way seems very plain to me
You will have eyes to see, and for that night, you'll be
A bright lamp burning in the darkness
And maybe that candle shines for only the briefest time
In a jack-o-lantern's heart
Oh, but one goblin's smile should make it all well worth while
You know you might even see the starlight
And knowing that time is brief, makes it that much more sweet
When you have a jack-o-lantern's heart"

Hi,

No idea what this was about, but nothing about Griet Zelle (performing under the name Mata Hari) suggests she was a spy. Since she lived so close-by in her youth, her history gets the occasional mention here. As the whole affair is more than a hundred years ago, the archives about her are now accessible to the public, but still nothing about spies. Griet fled when her father went broke, and she seems to have lived her life to always make sure people provided her with enough money. That's not really anything special, and neither is it that she liked boys wearing uniforms and boys not wearing uniforms.
If there is something to say about her, fine, but please write something that makes sense.

Bye

SONGS ABOUT JOHN BROWN

16 October 1859 - Abolitionist John Brown seized the Federal Arsenal at Harpers Ferry with about 20 followers. Three days later, Brown was captured and the insurrection was put down by U.S. Marines under the command of Col. Robert E. Lee. Brown was convicted of treason, murder, and inciting slaves to rebellion, and was hanged on December 2, 1859.

THE WOBBLING MAN (John Neville) from http://www.johnnevillemusic.com/?page_id=30#C11
As a cold October morn begins
An old man cries for his past sins
To his lips a picture I see him press
Of a dancing woman in a wedding dress
THE PIG GOT UP (Benjamin Hapgood Burt)
One evening in October
When I was about one-third sober
And was taking home a load with manly pride
My poor feet began to stutter
So I lay down in the gutter
And a pig came up and lay down by my side
