[Verse]
D                                 A
  I got my first real six string
                                D
brought it at the five & dime
                                A
played it til my fingers bled

was the summer of '69


[Verse]
D                               A
  Me and some guys from school
                                  D
had a band and we tried real hard
                                   A
Jimmy quit and Jody got married

shoulda known we'd never get far


[Chorus]
Bm          A              D
  Oh when i look back now
                      G             Bm
that summer seemed to last for ever
         A              D
and if I had the choice
              G              Bm
ya I'd always wanna be there
               A               D    A
those were the best days of my life



[Verse]
D                          A
  Ain't no use complaining
                         D
when ya gotta job to do
                                        A
spent my evenings down at the drive in

and that's when i met you - ya


[Chorus]
Bm                 A              D
  Standing on your mamma's porch
                       G            Bm
you told me that you'd wait forever
             A            D
and when you held my hand
                  G             Bm
I knew that it was now or never
               A~              D        A
those were the best days of my life, oh yeah
                       D   A
back in the summer of '69, oh


[Bridge]
F             A#
  Man we were killin' time
        C
we were young and reckless
   A#                F
we needed to unwind
        A#                  C
I guess nothing can last forever, forever


[Interlude]
D  A  2x


[Verse]
D                                 A
  And now the times are changin'
                                        D
look at everything that's come and gone
                                         A
sometimes when i play my old six string

I think about you wonder what went wrong


[Chorus]
Bm                 A             D
  Standing on your manna's porch
                 G            Bm
you told me it'd last forever
             A            D
oh, when you held my hand
                   G            Bm
I knew that it was now or never
               A~                   D   A
those were the best days of my life, oh yeah
                       D   A
back in the summer of '69
