Bryan Adams - Summer Of 69 (Official live)


 

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played 'til 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 Jody 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 a 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 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 Oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69

Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever no

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 it would last forever
Oh when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life Oh yeah

I love the song and my Bartek used to sing it for me.
