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

Three days later, Brown was captured and the insurrection was put down by U.S. Marines under the command of Col. Robert E. Lee.

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

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"

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".

THE OLD WOMAN TAUGHT WISDOM
'The Loyalists and Rebels both had different music concerning their side of the story. One song of the patriots is a song called “The Old Woman Taught Wisdom”. It was a song written in 1767 and supposedly sung after the Battle of Yorktown, this is unknown though, no one knows for sure if it was or not.'

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

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.
