Thread Name: Lyr Req: When You Were Sweet Sixteen (J Thornton)
Subject: RE: When you were sweet sixteen - original
Well done Joan .. keep it up. ~ The original song is much better than the cut down one ... I assume that James Thornton must have had some hand in the altered version as he didn't die until some years after Jolson recorded it. But he wasn't Irish as is claimed in the Furey's songbook.
