Oh, they were just sixteen
          F#
And their love a teenage dream
       G
They passed the time, they crossed the line
        F#                   G
The line that ran between
                               A

Oh they would walk the strip at nights
And dream they saw their name in lights
On Desolation boulevard
They'll light the faded light
Suzie and Davey you can make it

Rf.But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

So where were you in sixty-eight
    G
When Bobby and Billy thought
    F#
That sixty eight was out of date
They took the flowers from their hair
G
And tried to make us all aware
F#
Too bad, too late
      G
So they lived from day to day
             F#
And tried to do it all their way
       G
But sixty-eight was sixty-eight
F#
No matter what they say
G                             A
Bobby and Billy maybe you'll make it one day...

Rf.But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all
