ummer of '69 - Bryan Adams

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
It was the summer of '69

/ D - / A - / D - / A - /

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

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
Oh and if I had my choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

/ Bm A / D G / : / Bm A D - A - D - A - /

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's where I met you

Standin' on your mother'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

Man we were killing time
We were young and restless we needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever- forever, no

/ F - Bb - / C - Bb - F - / Bb - C - - - / (D - A - D - A - )

And now the times are changing
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you 'n' wonder what went wrong
