I was searching through some GnR lyrics and came across this:

Guns N Roses - Sail Away Sweet Sister Lyrics
Sail away sweet sister
Sail across the sea
Maybe you'll find somebody
That will love you half as much as me
My heart is always with you
No matter what you do
So sail away sweet sister
Cause I'll always be in love with you

But let her be somebody else's queen
I don't want to know about you
Cuz too many others know what I mean
And that's why I got to live without you

I'm in love with a girl
Been talkin' about
I'm in love with a girl
That I can't live without
I'm in love but it feels like
I'm livin' it out
I'm in love but I think I picked a Bad Time
To be in love


Did the website just mess up lyrics or did GnR ever sample Queen in their music?

A few other lyrics sites have those posted, too. I've never heard the song, though. Wonder if one website posted it and then others followed...

On Emule appears as a 'rare live', and I'm downloading it at the moment.

It seems a mixture between the Queen song and Sweet Child O Mine.

Axel did a quick snippet of Sail Away Sweet Sister during a show in Paris, singing just the opening line. The show was then broadcast on MTV among other places, and I'm sure that's why SASS has been found on several different websites, filesharing programs, etc.

The link you give also provides some rather strange GnR/Queen "songs." It doesn't appear to be the most trustworthy to begin with.

I think it was a standard thing on the Use Your Illusion tour for Axl to sing a little bit of SASS before Sweet Child O' Mine. it's on the Use Your Illusion concert video (and presumably the DVD too). Interestingly, they didn't do SCO'M at the tribute. If they had, and had done the same thing with SASS on the front too, it would've been a great moment!!
