Summer Of '69

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

Ma and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda know we'd never get far

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

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

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
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah!
Back in the summer of '69
Oh!

Man, we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever
Forever no
Yeah!

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 ya 'n wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that it'd last 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
Uh-huh
It was the summer of '69
Oh, yeah!
Me and my baby in a 69
Oh! Oh!

It was the summer
Summer
Summer of '69
Yeah!
