Bryan Adams - Summer Of '69 lyrics


ad
I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til 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 should've known we'd never get far

When I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
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

Standing on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
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 nothing can last
Forever [2x]
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 it'd last forever
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
It was the summer of '69
Me and my baby in '69
It was the summer
The summer [2x]
Of '69
