During Lynne's rendition, her band member played the track's signature guitar riff before she jumped in, singing powerfully. She then harmonized perfectly with another band member while singing the chorus.

What to know about "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses

Released in 1987 off of the band's debut album Appetite for Destruction, the song reached the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100. 

The lyrics, written by front-man Axl Rose, were inspired by his then-girlfriend, Erin Everly. In 2016, Spin listed "Sweet Child O' Mine" as the fifth best Guns N' Roses track out of the band's entire discography, noting the song's "enduring emotional resonance."

"Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Ross lyrics

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 stare too long, I'd probably break down and cry

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

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I'd 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

Whoa, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Whoa whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

Whoa, yeah
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh
Sweet love of mine
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Ooh, yeah
Ooh, sweet love of mine

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Ooh, oh, where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go? (Sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Where do we go now?
Ah, ah

Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now
Sweet child
Sweet child of mine
