Back to Summer Of '69 lyrics

Summer Of '69

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
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - 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 when I met you

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
oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69 Ohhhhh

Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can 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
Think about you wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that it 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

Ohh yeeaahh.... Back in the summer of '69
uhh huh...it was the summer of 69
Ohhh Yeeaahh....me and my baby in 69
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh...ho....
it was the summer....the summer, the summer of 69
YEAH
