If someone you were very fond of was celebrating their 60th birthday, you too might dispense with caution and embarrassment, dust off Garageband, grab the Taylor 410 (for sale, if anyone’s interested), and look up the chords to “You’re Sixteen,” which was #8 when Johnny Burnette did it in 1960, and #1 when Ringo Starr covered it in 1974, apparently with help from Paul McCartney (on the kazoo?) and Harry Nilsson. Anyway, the chords, the changes, were a lot more interesting than I expected, no offense intended to those performers.
Then you might send that person a little song, including:
You stepped out of a dream
Off of the farm
Now you’re our Sandy divine
And so fine
She really did come right from the farm.
You also might try to make sure that ‘her’ sunset, even though it’s been raining all day, didn’t look like a complete washout.
