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
Songwriter/Composer Bryan Adams, Jim Vallance
