[D7(2] She was [G]only six-[Em7]teen,[C] Only six-[D]teen,
[Am7]  I [D7]loved her [G]so.But [G]she was too [Em]young,
To [C]fall in [Am]love,And [C]I was too [D7]young to [G]know.


Verse 2:

[D7(2] We'd [G]laugh and we'd [Em]sing,
and [C]do the little [D]things,
[Am7] That [D7]made my heart [G]glow.]Em]
But [G]she was too [Em]young,
To [C]fall in [Am]love,
And [C]I was too [D7]young to [G]know.

Bridge 1:

[Am7] Why did I [D7]give my [G]heart so [Em7]fast?
It [Am7]never will [D7]happen a-[G]gain.
But [Am7]I was a [D7]mere [G]lad of six-[Em]teen;
[A7] I've aged a year since [D7]then.

Verse 3:

[D7(2] She was [G]only six-[Em7]teen,
[C] Only six-[D]teen,
[Am7] with [D7]eyes that would [G]glow.[Em]
But [G]she was too [Em]young,
To [C]fall in [D]love,
And [Am7]I was too [D7]young to [G]know.

Bridge 2:

(Then [Am7]why did you [D7]give,
Your [G]heart so [Em7]fast)?
It [Am7]never will [D7]happen a-[G]gain.
(But [Am7]you were a [D7]mere [G]lad of six-[Em]teen);
Oh, [Am7]I've aged a year since [D7]then.

Verse 4:

[D7(2] She was [G]only six-[Em7]teen,
[C] Only six-[D]teen,
[Am7] and I [D7]loved that girl [G]so.[Em]
But [G]she was too [Em]young,
To [C]fall in [Am]love,
And [C]I was too [D7]young to [G]know.

But [G]she was too [Em]young,
To [C]fall in [D]love,
And [Am7]I was too [D7]young,
I was much too young to [G]know.
