Chords and lyrics

Intro
D

Verse
D
I got my first real six string 
A
Bought it at the five and dime 
D
Played it till my fingers bled 
A
Was the summer of '69 

D
Me and some guys from school 
A
Had a band and we tried real hard 
D
Jimmy quit, Jody got married 
A
I should've known we'd never get far 
R

Chorus

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      A
Those were the best days of my life (hey) 

(samma chords som i Verse 1 --> D och A)

Verse
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 when I met you! yeah 

Chorus (samma chords som i första Chorusen)

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 
Bm                     A                        D     
Those were the best days of my life 
(oh ya!) 
 A                               D     
Back in the summer of '69 
 A 
(oh) 

If you find the chord F or A# tough, just fret
them in their fifth chord shapes

Brygga

F                    A#
Man we were killin' time 
                C
We were young and restless 
A#
We needed to unwind 
F            A#                      C                              D
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no... 
A   D   A
(yeah) 

Verse

And 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 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me that it'd last forever 
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) 
It was the summer of 69 (oh yeah) 
Me and my baby in 69 
Oooh, hey 
It was the summer 
Summer, Summer of 69 
Hey


IN the end it's just the chords D and A that are repeated over and over
