It would be very helpful to have links to performances of the songs and also more sources of information about them.

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

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

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.

His slicker covered ticket eight-oh-four-nine
And his love stared blankly at his bearded face

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
I know some navigators who can still do that today

THE FIRE OF FRENDRAUGHT(Child 196)

The eighteenth of October
A dismal tale for to hear
How good lord John and Rothiemay
Were both burned in the fire...


Not sure if there are any recorded versions on YouTube. I guess I could put my version up if anyone cares.

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.

AllisonA(Animaterra), thank you for

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

THREE JOLLY COACHMEN

also known as LANDLORD,FILL THE FLOWING BOWL has a stanza that goes,

Here's to the man who drinks water pure and goes to bed quite sober.
Here's to the man who drinks water pure and goes to bed quite sober.
He falls as the leaves do fall,
He falls as the leaves do fall,
He falls as the leaves do fall,
He'll die before October! (Ho! Ho! Ho!)

LANDLORD FILL THE FLOWING BOWL
Many recordings of Landlord Fill The Flowing Bowl on YouTube   
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.
