Summer of '69

Song Author Bryan Adams Lyrics by: Jim Vallance Performer: Bryan Adams Submitted by: Anonymous
[D]I got my first real six-string
[A]Bought it at a five-and-dime
[D]Played it til my fingers bled
[A]It was the summer of 69

[D]Me and some guys from school
[A]had a band and we tried real hard
[D]Jimmy quit and Jody got married
[A]I shoulda known we'd never get far

[Bm]Oh when I [A]look back now
[D]that summer seemed to [G]last forever
[Bm]Oh and if I [A]had a choice
[D]Yeah I'd [G]always wanna be there
[Bm]Those were the [A]best days of my [D]life

[D]Ain't no use in complainin'
[A]when you got a job to do
[D]Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
[A]and that's where I met you

[Bm]Oh when I [A]look back now
[D]that summer seemed to [G]last forever
[Bm]Oh and if I [A]had a choice
[D]Yeah I'd [G]always wanna be there
[Bm]Those were the [A]best days of my [D]life

[D]Standin on your mama's porch
[A]you told me that you'd wait forever
[D]Oh and when you held my hand
[A]I knew that it was now or never

Those were the [A]best days of my [D]life

[D]    [Dsus2]    [D]    [Dsus4]    [D]    [Dsus2]    [D]    [Asus2]    [A]    

[Asus4]back       [A]in the [Asus2]summer [A]of   [D]'69  

[F]Man we were [Bb]killing time
we were [C]young and restless we [Bb]needed to un[F]wind
I guess [Bb]nothin' can last for[C]ever- forever;[D] no

[Dsus2]    [D]    [Dsus4]    [D]    [Dsus2]    [D]    
[Asus2]    [A]    [Asus4]    [A]    [Asus2]    [A]    

[D]And now the times are changing
[A]look at everything thats come and gone
[D]Sometimes when I play that old six-string
[A]I think about you wonder what went wrong

[Bm]Oh when I [A]look back now
[D]that summer seemed to [G]last forever
[Bm]Oh and if I [A]had a choice
[D]Yeah I'd [G]always wanna be there
[Bm]Those were the [A]best days of my [D]life

Back in the summer of 69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at a five-and-dime
Played it til 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 shoulda known we'd never get far

Oh when I look back now
that summer seemed to last forever
Oh and if I had a choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
when you got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
and that's where I met you

Oh when I look back now
that summer seemed to last forever
Oh and if I had a choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Standin on your mama's porch
you told me that you'd 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 killing time
we were young and restless we needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever- forever; no


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

Oh when I look back now
that summer seemed to last forever
Oh and if I had a choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Back in the summer of 69
