When Johnson's poem (title: "WHEN YOU AND I WERE YOUNG") appeared first in his Maple Leaves in 1864, it was without chorus (Click here for the poem). The chorus, I think, was added when it was published as a song (Click here for the Chicago edition in 1866, published in the same year as the first Indianapolis edition).
