Songs about History?



My mom happened upon this, I thought it was catchy. Does anyone have any other songs that are about historical events? I knew there is a few but I cannot recall them off hand.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

In Ireland we have many songs about fighting the Brits. The below song is about the Easter Rising in Dublin 1916.

Perhaps less of the intended thread idea yet validly songs about history.

My father was a huge Horton fan.

He did another song about someone named Jim Bridger...

If I'm recalling the song correctly.

He also did North to Alaska -- but not sure if that was historical or just based on the movie with John Wayne.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

When I saw the title of the thread, this was actually what popped into my head before I clicked on it. Then again, it's been stuck in my head right alongside It's a Small World After All for about 25 years now.

Aw, FUCK! Angry That song (It's a Small World After All)is an abomination against humanity! I'm gonna go crank up some Led Zeppelin to get rid of that earworm, TYVM. Tongue
