2.    On the twentieth of October, in the year of seventy-three,
        I left my native island and sailed for Miramichi;
        I hired the day I landed there to work in Snowball's mill,
        A large three-story building at the foot of Sawdust Hill.

20.    They are all gone excepting me, I'm left to watch the camp.
        To watch the squirrels and loupcervier all racing through the swamp;
        The dreary winter past and gone, thank God I'm still alive,
        And if the spring proves favorable, I mean to stay and drive.

                "The Winter of Seventy-Three," Minstrelsy of Maine,
                Fannie Eckstorm; 1927; for notes see DigTrad filename[ WINTER73

There is also a maudlin Israeli song, the Children of Winter of '73.

That coincidence I'd bet concerns a winter 100 years after the Maine one, though.
