​Summer Of '69

This song is by Me First And The Gimme Gimmes.

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 and Jody got married
I should've known we'd never get far
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - 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 evenin's down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you - yeah
Standin' on your daddy'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
We were killin' time
We were young and reckless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever - 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 you wonder what went wrong
Standin' on your daddy'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
