[Intro]
   G5

[Verse 1]
      G                  C                G
Yeah, nine years old and sweet as she can be,
    C                                    G
All dressed up like a downtown Christmas tree,
D                          C         G
Dancin' And hummin' a rock-roll melo-dy.
                       C              G
She' the daughter of a well-respected man
    C                                 G
Who taught her how to judge and under-stand,
      D                  C             G
Since she became a rock 'n' roll music fan.

[Chorus 1]
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
    C
Her daddy don't have to scold her
    G
Her partner can't hardly hold her
    D              C
She never gets any older
G
Sweet little rock and roller

[Solo]
G C G D C G D7

[Verse 2]
                 G                 C             G
Should have seen her eyes when the band began to play
        C                              G
And the famous singer sang and bowed a-way
         D                  C                        G
When the star performed she screamed and yelled "Hoo-ray!"
                       C                      G
Ten thousand eyes were watching Him leave the floor.
     C                                          G
Five thousand tongues were screamin' "More, and More!"
         D                          C              G
'N'about fifteen hundred people waitin'Outside the door.

[Chorus 2]
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
C
Sweet little rock'n'roller
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
D                   C
Sweet little rock'n'roller
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
G
Sweet little rock'n'roller
