summer of 69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till 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 should 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 – Id always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Aint no use in complainin
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenins down at the drive-in
And thats when I met you

Standin on your mamas porch
You told me that youd 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 – forever, no

And now the times are changin
Look at everything thats come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about ya wonder what went wrong

Standin on your mamas 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

Back in the summer of 69

What do you think?
