Summer of ’69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at a five-and-dime
Played it til my fingers bled 
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
           Bm 
            Oh when I look back now
           
            that summer seemed to last forever
           Bm 
            Oh and if I had a choice
           
            Yeah I’d always wanna be there
           Bm 
            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
            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 
Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2 Asus2 
        
Asus4 Asus2 
back in the summer of ’69
Bb 
Man we were killing time
Bb 
we were young and restless we needed to unwind
Bb 
I guess nothin’ can last forever- forever;   no
Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2 
     
Asus2 Asus4 Asus2 
      
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
            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.
