I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five and Dime
Played it till my fingers bled
In the summer of 69

Me and some guys fom school
Had a band and tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jodie got married
Should've known we'd never get far

Oh and I'd look back now
Those summers seem to last forever
And if I had a choise
Yeah those wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complaining
When you gotta job to do
Spend my evenin's down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you yeah!

Standin on your mamma's porch
You told me that you'd it'd last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh yeah!
Back in the summer of 69

Ohhhhhhhh!

Man we would of killed the time
When we were young and restless
When were two and time

I guess nothing can last forever
Forever
Yeah!

And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I'd play that old six string
I'd think about you and what went wrong
Standing on your mamm's porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
And 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 69
It was the summer summer summer of 69
