D-I got my first real six-string
A-Bought it at the five-and-dime
D- Played it till 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 - And if I A had the choice
D -Ya I'd always G wanna be there
Bm - Those were the best days of my life- D 

D -Ain't no use in complainin'
A -When you got a job to do
D - Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in
A -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
Back in the summer of '69

F Man we wereBm  killin' time
We were C young and restless
We Bm  needed to unwind
F I guess Bm nothin' can last foreC ver - forever, no

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 '69
