Lyric:

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it til my fingers bled
It was the summer of sixty-nine
Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda 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 just 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 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 and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Oh, back in the summer of sixty-nine
Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless, we needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever, forever
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 ya - wonder what went wrong
Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me it would 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
Back in the summer of sixty-nine
Back in the summer of sixty-nine
Oh, back in the summer of sixty-nine
