Summer of ī69
Bryan Adams
I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till my fingers bled
It was summer of ī69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
I shoulda known weīd never get far

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya-Iīd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ainīt no use in complaininī
When you got a job to do
Spent my eveninīs down at the drive-in
And thatīs when I met you

Standinī on your mamaīs porch
You told me that youīd 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 ī69

Man we were killinī time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothinī can last forever - forever, no

And now the times are changinī
Look at everything thatīs come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six string
I think about you wonder what went wrong

Standinī on your mamaīs porch
You told me that itīd 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 ī69
