Song Released: 1988


Sweet Child O Mine Lyrics

She'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 her face
she takes me away to that special place
And if I stare too long
I'd probably break...

    Axl to his love at the time. Basically she is the thing, that when he is going through life, is his reason of living. She brings good memories and a feeling in his heart that he can't get from the world. Maybe when he says "sweet child o mine" he says that because shes youthful and pure and he feels protective to her.

    to me, although written for Axl's lost girlfriend, It reminds me so much of my son, that was taken away from me way too soon. - He was a "Sweet Child of Mine" 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 stare too long
    I'd probably break down and cry.
    Where do we go now?
    Where do we go?
    Sweet child o' mine

    Very simple message here as I'm sure any true fan would know but I'm just gonna put it on here anyway. The lyrics to this classic were written by Axl about his long time girlfriend Erin Everly who eventually married but then sadly divorced. The song itself was an actual accident when Slash and Steven Adler were warming up and just messing around. Slah for the longest time said he didn't really even like the song because it moves slow enough to be considered a ballad. That being said it still is an awesome song that continues to be played over and over again.
