She Was Only Sixteen

(G)She was only sixteen, (C)only sixteen,
(D)But I loved her (G)so,
She was too young to (C)fall in love,
And (D)I was too young to (G)know,

We'd laugh and we'd sing, (C)and do funny things,
(D)And it made our hearts (G)glow,
She was too young to (C)fall in love,
And (D)I was too young to (G)know,

So (C)why did I give my (G)heart so fast,
It (C)never will happen A(G)gain,
But (C)I was a mere (G)child of sixteen,
(D)I've aged a year since then,

She was (G)only sixteen, (C)only sixteen,
(D)Oh, with eyes that would (G)glow,
She was too young to (C)fall in love,
And (D)I was too young to (G)know,

So (C)why did I give my (G)heart so fast,
It (C)never will happen A(G)gain,
But (C)I was a mere (G)child of sixteen,
(D)I've aged a year since then,

She was (G)only sixteen, (C)only sixteen,
(D)Oh, but I loved that girl (G)so,
She was too young to (C)fall in love,
And (D)I was too young to (G)know.

Not necessarily a correction, but here's how I play it (in the key of C):

Verse: She was (C) only 16, (F) only six(G)teen
(F)But (G7) I loved her (C) so-o.
(C) She was too young to (F) fall in (G) love,
And (F) I was too (G7) young to (C) know (C7)

Refrain: So (Dm7) why did I (G) give my (C) heart so fast?
(Dm7) It'll never (G) happen a(C)gain.
But (Dm7) I was a (G) mere (C) child of six(Am7)teen.
(D7) I've aged a year since (G) then (G7)

Note: If you don't like the minor sevenths, you can play an F for the Dm7 (xoo211) and an Am for the Am7 (oo2o1o) and it works OK.

Cheers,
Ed
