Anyone know this one? I believe a variant on it appears in "The Plough and the Stars".

Could you be thinking of "Sweet Sixteen"? The Furey's do a nice job of it and if you can find an old Autoharp song book from Mel Bay its in there (Mostly) arranged for the old 15 Bar "A" model harps. (Black ones with sharp corners)

.....I loved you as I never loved before

When first I saw you on the village green......

..... I loved you as I loved you,

When you where sweet, when you were sweet sixteen.....

Song was first introduced by Al Jolson I believe. Or at least Finbar Furey think so.

Or could you be thinking about Maggie, by Johnson & Butterfield?

Maggie! Your right Jeri, The charcter says Sing me the song about Maggie in the play. I saw it 30 years ago in school. I just forgot for a minute.

The violets were scenting the woods Maggie. (Nora actually)

Look it up as Nora in the books of songs currently popular in Ireland. The original version of the song "When you and i were Young" is in a Foster and Allen songbook. Also in Heartsongs from 1898.

I've recently developed a love of Irish songs, & found a weekly singers session in an Irish pub in Boston USA. I learned "Maggie" from Maura O'Connell, to add to my "Irish" reportoire, even though songs of all traditions are welcome in the pub. I was disappointed to learn a few months ago that it was an American song. Now I'm learning it's Canadian, & was popularized in Ireland in an Irish play. I guess it doesn't really matter - a good song is a good song. But from my limited experience, "Maggie" feels so Irish to me. Do you think it has Irish influences? 1867 would've been after alot of Irish emmigrated to the Americas. And is this an example of a "parlour song"? I think I was told it pre-dated "music hall songs". Anything you could tell me would be appreciated. (I'd like to know a little more about the songs I sing, but not quite enough to want to do extensive research...)
