I got my first six-string
Boy did I have to fight and die
Played it 'til my fingers bled
Was the summer of 69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit, Jodie got married
I should have known we'd never get far

And when I look back now
The summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I just want to be there

Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complaining
When you got a job to do
I spend my evenings down in the drive in
And that's when I met you

Standing on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait for ever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never

Those were the best days of my life.
Oh yeah, back in the summer of 69
Oh.

(bridge)
Man we were killing time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever
Forever, no

Yeah

And now the times are changing
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you and what went wrong

Standing on your mama's porch
You told me that it would last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never

Those were the best days of my life.
Oh yeah. Back in the summer of 69
Ohhh..
It was the summer of 69
Oh yeah. Me and my baby in 69.
Ohh...
It was the summer,
The summer
The summer of 69
