I can't find the earlier thread asking about one of these songs. Does anyone remember the title or have another way to locate it? Key words still time out. I couldn't locate it by looking under my own name as a contributor!
Anyway, 'Maggie' is the song by George Johnson and James Butterfield (I think Butterfield composed the tune and Johnson the lyrics)and it's in the DT database. The Irish version is 'Nora', words by Seán O'Casey to Butterfield's tune and I spotted the lyrics and chords at Foxleap today when I was looking for something else.

Philippa:

The other way around. Johnson was the composer, he lived in the little town of Binbrook, Ontario, which has become a suburb of Hamilton, Ontario. Butterfield was a Chicago music publisher and he is said to have composed the music.

Irish Music Magazine has an excellent article on the song variously known as Maggie, Nora or When and I were Young.
You may know it from the Sean O'Casey play but this has a lot of excellent background.

The "Origins" thread crosslinked above (hint, hint) says the song publication date was 1866, lyrics published in Canada in 1864.
