Summer Of 69

Summer of 69

I got my first real six-string – bought it at the 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
Oh when I look back now – That summer 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

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 – ya
Standin’ on your mama’s proch – 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 – 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 – 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 ya wonder what went wrong

Standin’ on your mama’s porch – you told me it would last forever
Oh and when you held my hand – I knew that it was ow or never – ya
Those were the best days of my life – oh ya – back in the summer of ’69
Ya – me and my baby in ’69

It was the summer of ’69
