It's about the summer of '69' -the time that he was with that freak of a girl that always wanted to do it '69' style. -(a guy & a girl in the 'north/south' position) And "got my first 6 string" -meaning he lost his virginity for the first time. "we were young and restless" -man how much more obvious could it get with the sexual reference. And then when he says "sometimes when I play that old 6 string" -now when he does the 'four knuckle shuffle' by him self he fantasizes about her and their '69er' escapades.

Ah such a classic. Perhaps the song that got Adams established. Nevertheless, it's about his personal story of his first guitar and a temporary girlfriend, happening during the notorious summer of 69. 1969. So many stories. Would've been much fun if we were teenagers then.
