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.

    This song rocks. Slash and Axl are the best. One day I would hope to see a miracle where the original line-up of GNR comes back.

    Awesome song ... this is a song where a father or mother is telling us how his/her child reminds the days of our childhood. And this song really rocks

    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 !!!
