...ONLY SIXTEEN... by Sam Cooke
------------------.............

*Released 1959*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Ab)


Verse 1:

D13      G        Em7
 She was only six-teen,
C         D
 Only six-teen,
Am7 D7        G
  I loved her so.
    G           Em
But she was too young,
   C       D
To fall in love,
    Am7       D7       G
And I was too young to know.

Verse 2:

D13   G              Em
 We'd laugh and we'd sing,
    C             D
and do the little things,
Am7   D7            G
 That made my heart glow.
    G           Em
But she was too young,
   C       D
To fall in love,
    Am7       D7       G
And I was too young to know.

Bridge 1:

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

Verse 3:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sam_cooke/only_sixteen_crd.html ]
D13      G        Em7
 She was only six-teen,
C         D
 Only six-teen,
Am7 D7        G
  I loved her so.
    G           Em
But she was too young,
   C       D
To fall in love,
    Am7       D7       G
And I was too young to know.

Bridge 2:

      Am7         D7
(Then why did you give,
     G        Em7
Your heart so fast?
     Am7        D7   G          Em
(But you were a mere lad of six-teen);
    Am7                    D7
Oh, I've aged a year since then.

Verse 4:

D13      G        Em7
 She was only six-teen,
C         D
 Only six-teen,
Am7 D7        G
  I loved her so.
    G           Em
But she was too young,
   C       D
To fall in love,
    Am7       D7       G
And I was too young to know.

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