Happy Bastille Day!

7/14/1891
(7 prisoners freed)

        Allons, enfants de la patrie!
        Le jour de gloire est arrive!
        Contre nous de la tyrannie
        L'etendard sanglant est leve!
        L'etendard sanglant est leve!

                Ye sons of France, awake to glory!
                Hark! Hark! the people bid you rise!
                Your children, wives, and grandsires hoary
                Behold their tears and hear their cries!
                Behold their tears and hear their cries!

        "La Marseillaise" by Rouget de Lisle in 1792 (DT filename[ LAMARSEI)

And Happy International Folksingers' Day, re Woody Guthrie born 7/14/1912 (d10/3/1967)

As I was out a walking on the fourteenth of July,
I met a maid and I asked her age, and she gave me this reply:
"I have a little meadow, for you I've held in store.
"And it's only due I should tell you true, its never been mowed before."


The Mower - Folk Song in England, A. L. Lloyd

Make what you will of the day -- Tom

Thank you for your excellent contribution to the Happy File. The standard recompense is herewith dispatched.

I have this courtesy of John M on Lloyd's The Bird in the Bush but I never caught the date.

I agree that mowing is a fine way to spend the day - even better than revolting.

I'm not so sure angry mobs have quite the same priorities...
