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.

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.

In the summer of his years

'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.

Like chaff before the wind, my lads, we'll make our money flee
And every lad shall take his lass and he'll have her on his knee.

SHOOTING GOSCHEN’S COCKS UP

At ten o'clock next morning to the town hall we was taken.
We thought our case would settled be, but we were quite mistaken.
We was put back upon remand 'til the fourteenth of November,
And if you've read the Croydon Times, I 'spect you will remember.

THE LITTLE STREAM OF WHISKEY

Just a mile west of the water tank on a cold November day
In a cold and lonesome boxcar a dyin' hobo lay
His pal sat there before him with a low and drooping head
Listenin' to the last words his dyin' buddy said.

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.

RAGLAN ROAD

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.


Recording by
Luke Kelly.

ONLY OUR RIVERS RUN FREE
(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.


Recording by
Christy Moore.
