Intro: D* A* D* A*
D*                               A*
I got my first real six string - brought it at the five & dime
D*                              A*
Played it til my fingers bled - was the summer of '69
D*                               A*
Me and some guys from school had a band and we tried real hard
D*                                   A*
Jimmy quit and Jody got married - shoulda known we'd never get far
Bm        A               D                            G
Oh when I look back now - that summer seemed to last for ever
Bm      A               D               G
and if I had the choice - ya i'd always wanna be there
Bm               A                 D*     A*
Those were the best days of my life
D*                        A*
Ain't no use complaining - when ya gotta job to do
D*                                          A*
Spent my evenings down at the drive in - and that's when I met you - ya
Bm                A                D                           G
standing on your mamma's porch - you told me that you'd wait forever
Bm         A                 D                      G
and when I held your hand - I knew that it was now or never
Bm               A                 D*  A*                           D*   A*
Those were the best days of my life - back in the summer of '69

F              Bb
Man we were killin' time
          C                         Bb
We were young and reckless - we needed to unwind
F      Bb                    C
I guess nothing can last forever...
D* A* D* A*
D*
And now the times are changin'
A*
Look at everything that's come and gone
D*
Sometimes when I play my old six string
A*
I think about you wonder what went wrong
Bm                A                D                           G
Standing on your mamma's porch - you told me that you'd wait forever
Bm         A                 D                      G
And when I held your hand - I knew that it was now or never
Bm               A                 D*  A*                           D*   A*
Those were the best days of my life - back in the summer of '69
continue on D* A*
