Subject: RE: When You and I were Young Maggie
Is this song (or are any of its variants) still under copyright protection? If it was written in the 19th C., it doesn't seem like the original version could be. But the versions/arrangements published in the 1920s and later would be, I suppose.

A friend of mine says he researched it and that the song is not in the public domain yet. But I'd like to be clearer about which versions are and which are not.

Specifically, do any of you folks know which version(s) of the tune and lyrics ARE in public domain?
