Lyrics

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

Me and some guys from school Had a band and we tried real hard Jimmy quit, Jody got married Shoulda 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 complaining When you got a job to do Spent my evenings down at the drive-in And that's when I met you, yeah Standing on your 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. yeah, back in The summer of '69, ohh Man, we were killing time We were young and restless We needed to unwind I guess nothing can last forever Forever, no Yeah And now the times are changing Look at everything that's come and gone Sometimes when I play that old six-string Think about you, wonder what went wrong Standing 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 Oh yeah, back in the summer of '69, uh huh It was the summer of '69, oh yeah Me and my baby in '69, oohhh It was the summer The summer, the summer of '69
