Verse

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

Chorus

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

Verse

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

Bridge

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*

Verse

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

Chorus

Bm                 A              D                 G
  Standing on your manna's porch - you told me it'd last 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
