Bowling For Soup Lyrics

*  Summer Of '69

Originally by Bryan Adams



Got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69

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

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

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 where i met you, girl

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 yeah

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

Yeah, we were killin time
We were young and restless, we needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever,
Forever, no
Yeah

And now the times are a-changin
Look at everything that's come and gone
Everytime when i play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Standin on your mama's porch
(that's right)
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 yeah

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

Me and my baby had 69, oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69
