Sweet Child of Mine

Here are the lyrics to the first verse and chorus of this classic Guns N’ Roses song, written with solfège below. I love how do isn’t really landed on until the final note. It gives it a real feeling of resolution when finally arrived at.

She’s got a smile that it seems to me
s s s s f m f s me (‘meh*’ with a slide down…)

Re-minds me of child-hood me-mo-ries
d f m d f f f m r\

Where e__ v’ry thing was as fresh as the bright blue sky__
d f-m d f m d f f m f f fm

Now and then when I see her face
s s s f m f s m

She takes me a-way to that spe-cial place
s f m d f m d f s f

And if I stare__ too__ long, I’d pro- ‘bly break down and cry__
m f m f -m f-m f d f f f f s f-m

Whoa, oh, whoa
s l s-f

Sweet child o’ mine
f f f f-m

Whoa, oh, oh, oh__
s f m f-m

Sweet love of mine
d r m d

*”meh” represents mi lowered a half-step (semitone). You hear what Axl Rose is doing there!
