SIXTEENS        - THE SWEET (Chinn/Chapman)


F#                                G                      F#
Where were you in sixty-eight, in sixty-eight Julie was Johnnie's date.
                         G                              F#
Two kids growin' together Livin' each day as if time was slippin' away.
    G                                F#
Oh, they were just sixteen and their love a teenage dream.
     G                                           F#
They passed the time, they crossed the line, the line that ran between.
G                             A
Julie and Johnnie now you've made it!

    D         G   A7                  D
But life goes on,   you know it ain't easy.
                     G       A7
You've just gotta be strong 
if you're one of the sixteens.
    D         G         A                       D
And life goes on,   you know, you know it ain't easy 
You know you'll never go wrong 
                 A                         D
'Cause you're aaaa-aa-all, part of the sixteens.

Suzie and Davey got to make the big time, maybe they can,
put it all together, in a show that lasts forever?
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!



B  A E 
B  A G

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sixty eight was out of date.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

        Chorus x2 + fade away
