Summer of 69'

D
I got my first real six-string
A
Bought it at a five-and-dime
D
Played it til my fingers bled
A
It was the summer of 69

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

Chorus
Bm A
Oh when I look back now
D G
that summer seemed to last forever
Bm A
Oh and if I had a choice
D G
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
Bm A D
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
when you got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
and that's where I met you

Chorus
Standin 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
A D D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
Those were the best days of my life
A Asus2 A Asus4 A Asus2 A D
back in the summer of '69

Bridge
F Bb
Man we were killing time
C Bb F
we were young and restless we needed to un wind
Bb C D
I guess nothin' can last for ever- forever; no

D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D A Asus2 A Asus4 A Asus2 A
And now the times are changing
look at everything thats come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you wonder what went wrong

Chorus
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
