Sweet sixteen Fureys 1


             G                   Em                      C    Am
When first I saw the love light in your eyes,
D                                                                   G
I dreamt the world held naught but joy for me
          G                        Em             C
And even though we drifted far   apart
A 7                                                      D               
I never dream but what I dream of you

[Chorus]
    G                  Em                C
I love you as I never loved before
            D                                             G
Since first I saw you on the village green
          G                      Em                     C Am
Come to me or my dreams of love is O're,
      C                   G                                       D
I love you as I loved you, when you were sweet
                            Am       G
When you were sweet sixteen

          G                      Em                      C    Am
Last night I dreamt I held your hand in mine
   D                                                       G
And once again you were my happy bride
       G                  Em                C
I kissed you as I did on 'Auld Lang Syne',
A7                                                          D
As to the church we wandered side by side

[Chorus]

I am on my hobby horse again ! The Fureys may have recorded and arranged the song but it pre dates them by decades , having been published in 1898 , written by James Thornton .
And was recorded by Perry Como too !

Maybe but what makes the Fureys version of song so special is the haunting banjo plucking.
