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

D
Me and some guys from school
A
Had a band and we tried real hard.
D
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
A
I should've known we'd never get far


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

[INSTRUMENTAL] D A

[VERSE]
D
Ain't no use in complainin'
A
When you've got a job to do
D
Spent my evening's down at the drive-in
A
And that's when I met you, yeah

[PRE-CHORUS]
Bm                 A
Standin' on your mama's porch
D                      G
You told me that you'd wait forever
Bm                 A
Oh, and when you held my hand
D                    G
I knew that it was now or never
Bm                A             D
Those were the best days of my life


     A
Oh, yeah.
A                    D      A
Back in the summer of '69, oh.

[BRIDGE]
F               Bb
Man we were killin' time
        C
We were young and restless
     Bb
We needed to unwind
F          Bb              C
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no!

[INSTRUMENTAL] D A D A

[VERSE]
D
And now the times are changin'
A
Look at everything that's come and gone
D
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
A
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

[PRE-CHORUS]
Bm                 A
Standin' on your mama's porch
D                      G
You told me that you'd wait forever
Bm                 A
Oh, and when you held my hand
D                    G
I knew that it was now or never
Bm                A             D
Those were the best days of my life


     A
Oh, yeah.
A                       D   A
Back in the summer of '69, oh.
                      D         A
It was the summer of '69, oh, yeah.
                   D   A
Me and my baby in '69, oh.
             A          D                            A
It was the summer, the summer, the summer of '69, yeah.
