One of Guns n' Roses many great songs. It is a love song written for Axl Rose's then-wife Erin Everly.

It started during a jam session when as a joke Slash started playing, in his words, "a stupid little riff" which he'd used as an excercise, and making wierd faces at drummer Steve Adler. Izzy Stradlin then came in with some chords and Duff McKagan improvised a bass line. Axl was amazed and started singing from a love letter to Erin. In 1988, with the release of Appetite for Destruction, Sweet Child reached #1 on the billboard top 40, even passing Welcome to the Jungle. Slash originally didn't like the song, but after playing it live he began to enjoy it more. His riff is always listed as one of the greatest ever by music critics.
Unfortunately, Axl and Everly's relationship did worse than the song, ending in divorce and spousal abuse lawsuits. But the song is amazing anyway.
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'd stare too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Woah, oh, oh, Sweet child o' mine
Whoah, oh, oh, oh, Sweet love of mine

She'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
Her 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

Woah, oh, oh, Sweet child o' mine
Woah, oh, oh, oh, Sweet love of mine

Woah, oh, oh, yeah
Whoah, oh, oh oh, Sweet child o' mine
Whoah oh, oh, oh, sweet love of mine
Whoah, oh, oh oh, Sweet child o' mine, ooh yeah,
Oh, sweet love of mine

Where do we go,
Where do we go now,
Where do we go,
Where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
Where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
Where do we go now,
where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
where do we go,
where do we go now,
where do we go,
whoah, where do we go now,

Sweet child,
Sweet child o' mine

One of the best Songs Guns N' Roses ever made. The supposedly best ever Guns N' Roses song. OK i'll admit that it does have one of the greatest riffs in history, but it dnt hold a candle to 'Civil War' and every true GnR fan will agree with me
Chris: Dude, you like GnR's song 'Civil War'?
Nathan: Nah, man, Sweet Child O' Mine is better
Chris: U fuckin pussy

Remembering happier days of times gone by that nothing or noone can bring back.The smiles that reach the eyes that sometimes dont quite make it there no more.Times of carefree living, loving, grasping life by its coat tails and going for the ride.A time to cherish and appreciate and try never to let go of the spirit you had so happy within.To have one sound that can bring it all back even if for only a few minutes, to taste smell and savour....if only.
To take all that you enjoy and bottle it up for harder times and sink deep into the realms of bliss.

Take me back there just for a while
Remind me how it feels to smile
Let me be a child once more
Hoping and wishing is what those days were for.
Sweet child o mine
