#1.
C            Am            F               G
She was only seventeen and he was one year more.
C                  Am                F

 G
adored.
    C                   C7                   F
But all their friends believed they were too young
            Fm
to know the score..
      C            Am            F      G        C

#2.
C            Am                F         G        C
Are they old enough to know if love will last for life?
C            Am            F        G     C
Isn't he too young to be a husband, her a wife?
    C             C7                F                Fm
Within the past I bet it's happened more than once before.
     C                Am          F       G        C
When someone else was seventeen, another, one year more.

BRIDGE:
G              D                 G
Do we have the right to question love that seems so strong?
G                  D             G               G7
As long as God has no objections there can be no wrong.

#3.
C             Am                 F            G
Let us be the first to wish them all the very best.
C                 Am             F                  G
Let us hope their love is strong enough to meet the test.
      C             C7                F                Fm
Cause like I say, I bet it's happened more than once before.
     C                Am           F      G        C
When someone else was seventeen, another, one year more.

BRIDGE:
G              D                 G
Do we have the right to question love that seems so strong?
G                  D             G               G7
As long as God has no objections there can be no wrong.
