Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
Shoulda known, we'd never get far
Verse 3
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I'd always want to be there
Those were the best days of my life
Verse 4
Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Oh yeah
Back in the summer of '69
Ohhh
Verse 7
Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no
Verse 8
And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
Think about you wonder what went wrong
Verse 9
Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Verse 10
Oh yeah
Back in the summer of '69
Un-huh
It was the summer of '69, oh yeah
Me and my baby in '69, oh
Verse 11
It was the summer, the summer, summer of '69, yeaaa
