Summer Of '69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played until my fingers bled
It was summer of '69


Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I should have known we'd never get far


Oh, when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life


Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin's down at the drive in
And that's when I met you


Standin on a mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life


Oh when I look back now
That was seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life


Back in the summer of '69


Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no


And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you wonder what went wrong


Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh, the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life


Back in the summer of 69


It was the summer of 69


Me and my babe in 69


It was the summer... summer... summer of 69
