SWEET LITTLE 16
written and performed by Chuck Berry


[Chorus 1]

                          G       G7             C
They're really rockin' in Boston,   Pittsburgh, PA
                     G     G7                     C
Deep in the heart of Texas   and round the Frisco Bay
             F                        C
All over St. Louis, way down in New Orleans
                   G          G7              C
All the cats wanna dance with   Sweet Little 16


[Verse 1]
(same as chorus 1)

Sweet Little 16, she's just got to have
About a half a million framed autographs
Her wallet's filled with pictures; she gets them one by one
Becomes so excited; won't you look at her run, boy?


[Bridge]

           F                   C
"Oh Mommy, Mommy, please may I go?
                     G    G7
It's such a sight to see;   somebody steal the show
          F            C
Oh Daddy, Daddy, I beg you
           G     G7
Whisper to Mommy   it's all right with you"


[Chorus 2]
(same as chorus 1)

'Cause they'll be rockin' on the bandstand
Philadelphia, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas and round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis, way down in New Orleans
All the cats wanna dance with Sweet Little 16


[Instrumental]
(same pattern as verses and choruses)


[Chorus 2]
(same as chorus 1)

'Cause they'll be rockin' on the bandstand
Philadelphia, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas and round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis, way down in New Orleans
All the cats wanna dance with Sweet Little 16


[Verse 2]
(same as chorus 1 chords)

Sweet Little 16, she's got the grownup blues
Tight dresses and lipstick
She's sportin' high-heeled shoes
Oh, but tomorrow mornin'
She'll have to change her trend
And be sweet 16 and back in class again


[Chorus 1]

                          G       G7             C
They're really rockin' in Boston,   Pittsburgh, PA
                     G     G7                     C
Deep in the heart of Texas   and round the Frisco Bay
             F                        C
All over St. Louis, way down in New Orleans
                   G          G7              C
All the cats wanna dance with   Sweet Little 16

FYI, I made a nit-picking correction in the lyrics. "Bandstand" was a TV dance show, starring Dick Clark, back in the late 50's - early 60's. It was broadcast weekday afternoons from Philly. That is the reference in the song.
