Thread Name: Lyr Req: When You Were Sweet Sixteen (J Thornton)
Subject: RE: When you were sweet sixteen - original
Thanks for your trouble .. I already have the original music. I sing this song myself in this original way. The melody is in three parts rather than the two most would be used to, also the words are different. I just wondered if there was anyone else out there that was true to the original. It really is a shame that this lovely song as it was written is all but forgotten. Surely as loyal folkies/mudcatters we should be flying the flag for songs as the composer had intended them.
