This is a beautiful slow song that sounds great on an acoustic.

[intro 2x]  {---- = 1 beat}

  G           Bm           Em          C 

[verse 1] - continue above picking pattern

G          Bm            Em            C             G
   She was only sweet sixteen, teenage girl, teenage dream
      Bm                  Em   C
And I thought I loved her so
G         Bm                Em        C                   G
   By the way she looked at me, I was sure our love could be
         Bm                 Em   C(walk-down)
Then she broke my heart you know

[chorus prelude] - switch to playing full chords for rest of song
{walk-down to Am by playing 3-2 on the A string}
Am                           C            D(walk-down)
What do you cry when there's nothing left inside
Am          		    C
What do you cry when you've got to show
D						D
things that you would rather hide?


     G        Bm        Em      C
Have mercy mercy on me, mercy mercy
     G        Bm        Em      C
Have mercy mercy on me, mercy mercy
     G        Bm        Em
Have mercy mercy on me, mercy mercy
     C           G   Bm   Em   C
Have mercy on me oh

[verse 2]

G         Bm          Em           C                  G
   Son of God, Son of Man, came to bring His Father's plan
      Bm                Em   C
And I heard he loved me so
G           Bm                Em        C                   G
   From the words he spoke to me, I was sure our love could be
       Bm                  Em
Then I broke his heart you know

[chorus prelude]

[chorus x2]
