She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I'd stare too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Oh, Oh, Oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Oh, Oh, Oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Sweet love of mine

Oh, Oh, Oh, yeah
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Sweet love of mine

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh,
Sweet love of mine

[Guitar Solo]

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, Oh
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, (sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
No, No, No, No, No, No
Sweet child,
Sweet child of mine.

    Na sniffles your wrong this aint the best song it was just the most famouse what about songs like 'my michelle' and 'mr. Brownstone' stop following the crowd and think for your self if you really think this the best song they ever done then you aint a guns n roses fan simple as.
    But on the other hand this is an awsome song about a man falling in love with the most beautiful girl he has ever seen, I know how he is feeling.
    Guns 'n' roses for life!

    Personally, I'm pretty sure it's one dude tryna to explain to somebody about his best childhood friend, who was female of course, but how also it was the girl he was in love with. Now currently he feels as if he doesn't know what to do without her, hence the line, "Where do we go now?"
    That question has been asked a lot in the 80's. There were probably a lot of departs and break ups.

    My son loved guns n roses, he slipped into unconciousness for 17 days until he passed away. While he was in the hospital I put the words "sweet child of mine... Where do we go now" on the message board is his room. After he passed, this song would play on the radio. Always at a time when I most needed to hear it. I take it as a sign from my son. Thanks axle. He also plays for me "paradise city" and "knockin on heavens door", these songs let me know he is ok.
