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


Below is an alphabetical index of the titles collected in this thread so far. If a title in this index is clicked then you should be jumped to the section of the thread in which most of the discussion and links for that title occurs. 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. Or I might add in-thread links between separated posts on the same songs - Regards, GeoffLawes

John F Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, was assassinated, 22 November 1963.

THAT WAS THE PRESIDENT
It's not only for the leader that the sorrow hits so hard
There are greater things I'll never understand
How a man so filled with life, even death was caught off guard.
That was the president and that was the man.


That Was the President, by Phil Ochs. Recording

I remember this one, November Snow. A group called Rejoice, consisting of a couple named Tom and Nancy Brown. No little about them. I have the album. From the late 60's I think. Musicians include Joe Osborn bass, Hal Blaine-drums and Larry Knechtel-piano and organ.

Yes, the heart of the world weighs heavy
With the helplessness of tears
For the man cut down in a Texas town
In the summer of his years

THE HUNTING SONG
I always will remember,
'Twas a year ago November,
I went out to hunt some deer
On a morning bright and clear.
I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

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.

Robert Willance and horse leapt accidentally from Whitcliffe Scar (212ft) nr Richmond (yes N.Yorks) in November 1606, we don't know a date or indeed his age. When I was away on a trainee engineer course I wrote a song of the tale and sang it at the Leap as part of the centenary celebrations in 2006.
It did happen in Nov but that doesn't get a mention in the song.


Do you have a title ,lyrics or recording that you can post JHW ?

WRECK OF THE 97

'Twas the twenty-second day of that November
And the clouds were hanging low
He took old 97 out of Washington station
Like an arrow shot from a bow


This version of the lyrics mentions November, but in fact the accident took place in September of 1903. Other versions, usually under the title "Wreck of the Old 97," don't mention a date at all.
Here's the 1924
recording by Vernon Dalhart, said to be the first country music hit record.

ROBERT WILLANCE

Oh Willance he was a wealthy man, in Richmond did reside-o
And all to take of the winter’s air for Marrick he did ride-o
But ere the priory was into view he’s headed back for town–o
As on the top of the Whitcliffe Scar the mist comes clouding down-o

He’s picked his way all through the mist and as he heads for home-o
There’s many a stream aye and ditch to cross along the way he’s come-o
And when he’s come to the first bank side, “Go well me mare”, says he-o
And out she leaps all through the mist and safe has landed she-o

So when he’s come to the next bank side, again she leaps the mare-o
And here again at the third bank side so bravely through the air-o
And when he’s come to the next bank side, he tightly holds the rein-o
As across the ditch be short or wide she blindly leaps again-o

But here’s the edge of the Whitcliffe Scar, two hundred feet below
All tumbled over all through the air does horse and rider go
The poor mare came crashing down and broken lay and dead-o
And Willance he fell by her side, his leg all tore and red-o

And as he lay in the shivering damp, O Willance he did cry-o
If no-one finds me here tonight then surely I may die-o
But as he felt of his broken bones his face was pale and ill-o
Then he says, “Me mare, you’ve served me well but you may serve me still-o

For if I cut open my good mare’s side then I may not be lost -o
And if I place all my leg inside it’ll save me from the frost-o”
So he’s cut open her belly wide and that was how they found him
Alive and with his leg inside, the corpse still warm around him

They’ve taken him down to Richmond town, his leg they have took off him
And in Saint Mary’s old churchyard they’ve placed it in a coffin
And ten years after did Willance die and as he had decided
His leg it was dug up again and they were reunited.

Willance’s Leap why the place is known and you can still read there-o
His words upon the marking stone as thanks to God and mare-o.

1606 Hear Us.
Glory be to our merciful God who miraculously preserved me from the danger so great.

In a cold and lonesome boxcar a dyin' hobo lay
His pal sat there before him with a low and drooping head

SKIBBEREEN

It's well I do remember on a bleak November's day,
The landlord and his agent came to drive us all away;
He set my house on fire with his demon yellow spleen
And that's another reason why I left Old Skibbereen.


That's how it's given in the DT. Elsewhere, as in this
recording, it is set in December.

On Grafton Street in November, we
Tripped lightly along the ledge
Of a deep ravine where can be seen
The worth of passion play.
The Queen of Hearts still making tarts
And I not making hay;
Oh, I loved too much and by such and such
Is happiness thrown away.

(Mickey MacConnell)

When apples still grow in November,
When blossoms still grow from each tree,
When leaves are still green in December,
It's then that our land will be free.
I wander the hills and valleys,
And still through my sorrow I see,
A land that has never known freedom,
And only her rivers run free.

Many a day has passed, the night has gone by
But still I find the time to put that bump off in your eye
Total chaos, for these playas, thought we was absent
We taking another route to represent the Dungeon family
Like Great Day, me and and my nigga decide to take the back way
We stabbin every city when we headed to that bat cave
A-T-L, Georgia, what we do for ya
Bull doggin hoes like them Georgetown Hoyas
Boy you soundin silly, thank my Brougham aint sittin pretty
Doin doughnuts round you suckas like them circles around titties
Damn, we the committee, gone burn it down
But us gone bust you in the mouth with the chorus now

To simulate then activate the left and right brain
Said baby boy you're only funky as your last cut
You focus on the past your ass'll be a has but
Thats one to live by or either that one to die to
I try to just throw it at you determine your own adventure
Andre, got to her station heres my destination
She got off the bus, the conversation lingered in my head for hours
Took a shower kinda sour cause my favorite group aint commin wit it
But im witcha you cause you probably goin through it anyway
But anyhow when in doubt, went on out and bought it
Cause I thought it would be jammin, but examine all the flawsky-wasky
Awfully sad and its costly but thats all she wrote
And I hope I never have to float in that boat
Up shits creek "it's weak" is the last quote
That I want to hear when i'm goin down when all's said and done
And we got a new joe in town
When the record playa get skippin and slowin down
All y'all can say is them niggas earned that crown, but until then
Ah ha, hush dat fuss

ROSA PARKS by Kristin Lems     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnC4KYqcV1k

In Montgomery Alabama not a long time ago
A colored lady sat down on the bus
She was tired, she did day work
She scrubbed floors, her feet hurt
And since that day, she changed the world for us

Because she said, “No sir, I won’t get up.
I’m tired and I want to sit down and I won’t get up.”
You can talk about Martin Luther King,
Have demonstrations, anything
Just remember who began it – Rosa Parks!

Well in this wide and wicked world, tell me
What kind of man
Would say to a nice old lady, “Nxxx, get up!”
Well she was just like me and you
And she did what she must do
And she said, “No sir, I won’t get up.”

And she said, “No sir, I won’t get up.
I’m tired and I want to sit down and I won’t get up.”
You can talk about Martin Luther King,
Have demonstrations, anything
Just remember who began it – Rosa Parks!

Well one day the South will rise
And the North will realize
Who our heroes really truly are
And then we’ll tear down those statues Of Robert E. Lee
And put one up for good ole Rosie Parks!

Because she said, “No sir, I won’t get up.
I’m tired and I want to sit down and I won’t get up.”
You can talk about Martin Luther King,
Have demonstrations, anything
Just remember who began it – Rosa Parks!

8th NOVEMBER     - Big and Rich

Said goodbye to his momma as he left South Dakota
To fight for the red, white and blue
He was nineteen and green with a new M-16
Just doing what he had to do
He was dropped in the jungle where the choppers would rumble
With the smell of napalm in the air
And the sergeant said look up ahead
Like a dark evil cloud
Twelve-hundred came down on him and twenty-nine more
They fought for their lives but most of them died
In the one-seventythird Airborne
On the eighth of November the angels were crying
As they carried his brothers away
With the fire raining down and the hell all around
There were few men left standing that day
Saw the eagle fly through a clear blue sky
1965, the eighth of November
Now he's fifty-eight and his pony tail's gray
But the battle still plays in his head
He limps when he walks but he's strong when he talks
About the Shrapnel they left in his leg
He puts on a gray suit over his Airborne tattoo
And he ties it on one time a year
And remembers the fallen as he orders a tall one
And swallows it down with his tears
On the eighth of November the angels were crying
As they carried his brothers away
With the fire raining down and the hell all around
There were few men left standing that day
Saw the eagle fly through a clear blue sky
1965
The eighth of November
The eighth of November (eighth of November)
Said goodbye to his momma as he left South Dakota
To fight for the red, white, and blue
He was nineteen and green with a new M-16
Just doing what he had to do

Deleting the cookie didn't work this time. Ad overrode thread request.
As Yew trees are dropping their red berries it must be time for this one. Remember Man (a song to circulate a tombstone message) Whorlton Castle and old Church are near Swainby, North Yorkshire.

Where Whorlton Castle stood it's ground,
Red candle berries strewn around,
Between the yews I walk alone
To read a verse upon a stone

These words above his head there put
By one long dead there underfooot,
Beside the ruined chancel wall
I read his message to us all

'Remember Man as thou goes by
As thou are now so once was I
As I am now so must thou be
Remember Man that thou must die'

The frost is white behind the stone
My lamp alight to lead me home
But then a fear a sudden dread
For now I hear the words I read

'Remember Man as thou...

Beyond the tower I run in haste
Between the yews I reach the gate
And hear again the dreary rhyme
And feel a gentle hand on mine

'Remermber Man as thou...

A CHAT WITH YOUR MOTHER
(Lou & Peter Berryman)

There are jocks who think that God himself
Is drooling in the bleachers
In a cold November downpour
With a bellyful of brew
Whose entire grasp of heaven
Has a lot to do with football
It's from them I would expect to hear
The F-word, not from you

In THE PIG GOT UP (Lyrics: Benjamin Hapgood Burt,1880-1950,the boozer meets a pig in October and a horse in November.

I also well remember
One evening in November
When I was creeping home at break of day
For in my exhilaration
I engaged in conversation
With a cab-horse, right on the corner of Broadway

I was filled up to the eyeballs
With a flock of gin and highballs
So I whispered to the cab-horse old and grey
I says, "It's these all-night homeward marches
That gave us both our fallen arches."
And the old horse laughed and slowly walked away

On the fourteenth of November, from Cook's Harbour we set sail,
Bound down to Gibraltar, with a soothing, pleasant gale

A BALLYNURE BALLAD
Many recordings on YouTube    
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=A+BALLYNURE+BALLAD


As I was goin' to Ballynure,
The day I well remember,
For to view the lads and lasses
On the fifth day of November,
With a ma-ring-doo-a-day,
With a ma-ring-a-doo-a-daddy oh.

As I was goin' along the road
When homeward I was walking,
I heard a wee lad behind a ditch-a
To his wee lass talking,
With a ma-ring-a-doo-a-daddy oh.

Said the wee lad to the wee lass
"It's will ye let me kiss ye,
For it's I have the cordial eye
That far exceeds the whiskey,"
With a ma-ring-a-doo-a-daddy oh.

This cordial that ye talk about
There's very few o' them gets it,
For there's nothin' now but crooked combs
And muslin gowns can catch it.
With a ma-ring-a-doo-a-daddy oh.

Repeat second verse
