"Sweet Child O' Mine" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler....
He's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see his face
He takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love o'mine

He's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain

His hair reminds me
Of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love o'mine
Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love o'mine

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Where do we go
Sweet child
Where do we go now

Where do we go
Where do we go sweet child
Where do we go now [Repeat until end]

    General CommentSheryl Crow has just been convicted of Murdering a lovely effort by GNR. She should be hanged till death and probably cut to pieces. The ladt culdnt match axl in any dimension except for the fact that they are both singers.

    General CommentSheryl Crow covered this song after promising Axl rose that she's cover it for her if he let her go. She was in an alley one time and Axl came up to her and punched her in the jaw, knocking her out. When she was awake, she was covered in shit and blood. She started to panic as she was trying to get out of a serious beating, this only made Axl not take her seriously and then he started peeing in her mouth.
