Summer Of '69

In the style of

Bryan Adams

Lyrics

i got my first
real six-string
bought it at
the five-and-dime

played it till
my fingers bled
was the summer of '69
me and some guys
from school
had a band and
we tried real hard

jimmy quit
jody got married
i shoulda known
we'd never get far
oh when
i look back now
the summer seemed
to last forever

and if i had the choice
yeah i'd always
wanna be there
those were
the best days
of my life

hey
ain't no use in
complainin'
when you got
a job to do

i spent my evenin's
down at the drive-in
and that's when
i met you yeah
standin' on
your mama's porch
you told me that
you'd wait forever

oh the way 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

well we were
killin' time
we were
young and restless
we needed to unwind

i guess nothin'
could last forever
forever no
yeah

and now the times
are changin'
look at everything
that's come and gone

sometimes when
i play that old
six-string
i think about you
wonder what
went wrong

standin' on
your mama's porch
you told me that
it'd 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
oh yeah
back in the
summer of '69
uh huh

it was the
summer of '69
oh yeah
me and my baby in '69
oh oh

it was the summer
summer
the summer of '69
yeah
