Summer of '69 (Video)

I got my first real six-string,
bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
't 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 should've known we'd never get far.

Oh, when I look back now
That 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.

Ain't no use in complaining,
when you've got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you, yeah.

Standing on your mama's porch
you told me that [you'd wait/*it'd 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.

Instrumental (oh yeah, back in the summer of '69, oh!)

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, wonder what went wrong.
