[Verse]

Am

                      Fadd2                     Am
Gave my heart an engagement ring she left everything
      G                         Am
Everything I gave her, oh, sweet sixteen
                      Fadd2
Built a moon for a rocking chair
                                            G
I never guessed it could, rock her far from here

Oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

F                 G              
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's built a candy girl and drew her in

F               G              
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's built a candy girl and drew her in


[Figure #1]
I'd do anything for my sweet sixteen

Oh, I'll do anything for that runaway child

                    Fadd2
Well, a memory can burn you
               Am
Memories grow older as people can
                G
They just get colder, said sweet sixteen

      Fadd2
Oh, I see it's clear, baby
                          G
That you are all through here

Oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

F               G              
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's took that candy girl and drew her in

F               G             Am
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's took that candy and drew it in

[Figure #1]
I'd do anything for my sweet sixteen

Oh, I'll do anything for that runaway child


F C G [x4]

[Bridge]

G
Get up in the morning, sweat over you
Get up in the morning, sweat over you
Get my leg over, leg over, sweet sixteen

[Figure #1]
Sweet sixteen, that runaway child

                    Fadd2                   Am
Gave my heart an engagement ring she took everything
              G                          Am
Everything I gave her, oh, sweet sixteen
                   Fadd2
Set a moon for a rocking chair

I never guessed it would
                    G
Rock her far from here

Oh, oh, oh, oh

F               G              
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's built a candy brain and drew her in

F               G              
Someone's built a candy castle
                Am
For my sweet sixteen
F               G                      Am
Someone's built a candy brain and drew her in

[Figure #1]
I'd do anything for my sweet sixteen

The Fadd2 Sounds good but its just F man..i dunno why people wanna make a simple song complicated..Even the other version for some reason put Am7.Hell no.its not ..but i can accept the Fadd2.it good alternative but still sounds better with regular F

Sorry, dude, but an Fadd2 isn't more complicated to some people and IMO, fits this version much better than a regular F. If you play it with the Storytellers version, I'm sure you'll see the difference.
