Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams

Strophe)

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 

 

Strophe) 

Me and some guys from school 

hat a band and we tried real hard

Jimmy quit, Joey got married 

I shoulda known we´d never get far 

 

Refrain) 

Oh when I look back now 

That summer seem to last forever 

and if I had the choice 

jeah, I´d always wanna be there 

Those were the best days of my life

 

Strophe) 

Ain´t no use in complainin´

when you got a job to do 

spent my evenin´s down at the drive in 

and that´s when I met you 

 

Refrain) 

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 

Oh jeah, Back in the summer of 69 

 

Bridge) 

Man we were killin´time 

We were yound and restless 

We needed to unwind 

I guess nothin´can last forever, forever no 

 

Strophe) 

And now the times are changin´

look at everything that´s come and gone 

sometimes when I play that old six string

I think about you wonder what went wrong 

 

Refrain) 

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 

 

Oh jeah, Back in the summer of 69
