Songtext:

I got my first real six-string
bought it at the five-and-dime
played it ‘till 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 should know 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 where the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complaining
when you got a job to do
spent my evenin's down at the drive-in
and that's when I met you

Standing on your mama's porch
you told me that you'd wait forever
ah, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
those where 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 nothing can last forever
forever, no

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

Standing on your mama's porch
you told me that you'd wait forever
ah, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
those where the best days of my life

back in the summer of ‘69, yeah!
