Summer of ’69 Lyrics – Bryan Adams

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, Jody got married
I shoulda known we’d never get far

Oh when I look back now
The 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 complaining
When you got a job to do
I spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that’s when I met you

Standing on your momma’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 yeah… back in the summer of 69

Man we were killing time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothing could 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
Think about you wonder what went wrong

Standing on your momma’s porch
You told me that it’d last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my lfe

Oh yeah… back in the summer of 69
Uh huh… it was the summer of 69
Oh yeah… me and my baby in 69
It was the summer, summer, summer of 69
