Subject: RE: Origin: When You and I were Young Maggie
Just as an aside, when I first heard the "Nora" version of the song sung by Johnny McEvoy, I speculated that Johnny, being a good Irish boy, just couldn't bring himself to sing a love song to someone named Maggie (since that was the name of the British Prime Minister). I figured he had just changed the name. I see by the above comments that that's not true. It seemed a reasonable assumption at the time............   :-)
