Summer of ’69 – BRYAN ADAMS

guitar22
D
  I got my first real six-string
A
  Bought it at the five and dime
D
  Played it 'til my fingers bled
A
  It was the summer of sixty-nine
D
  Me and some guys from school
A
  Had a band and we tried real hard
D
  Jimmy quit and Jody got married
A
 I shoulda known we'd never get far
 
Bm           A
  Oh, when I look back now
D                       G
  That summer seemed to last forever
Bm         A
  And if I had the choice
D                G
Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
Bm               A               D
  Those were the best days of my life
 
Ain't no use complaining
When you got a good job to do.
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you
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

A                     D     A
Back in the summer of sixty-nine
F            Bb
Man, we were killin' time
        C                      Bb
We were young and restless, we needed to unwind
F       Bb                           C
I guess nothing can last forever, forever
 
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
Standing on your mama's porch
You told me it'd 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
