D          D                    A                  A
  I got my first real six string, bought it at the five & dime
D                   D            A                     A
  Played it ‘til my fingers bled, it was the summer of sixty-nine
D             D               A                  A
  Me and some guys from school had a band and we tried real hard
D                D                A                   A
  Jimmy quit and Jody got married, shoulda known we'd never get far



Chorus : 
Bm          A            D                      G
  Oh when I look back now that summer seemed to last forever
Bm         A             D             G
  And if I had the choice ya I'd always wanna be there
Bm               A>let ring        D     D    A    A  (+riff)
  Those were the best days of my life



2nd verse :
D          D              A               A
  Ain't no use complaining when you got a job to do
D                   D                   A                  A
  Spent my evenings down at the drive in and that's when I met you


Chorus :
Bm                 A            D                       G
  Standing on your mamma's porch you told me that you'd wait forever
Bm             A           D                   G
  And when you held my hand I knew that it was now or never
Bm               A>let ring      D    D   A     A   (+riff)
  Those were the best days of my life, oh yeah
                      D           D     A     A   (+riff)
Back in the summer of sixty-nine



Bridge :
F            A#
 Man we were killin' time
         C                      A#
 We were young and reckless, we needed to unwind
F         A#                  C        C
  I guess nothing can last forever, forever

3rd verse :
D             D                 A                    A
  And now the times are changing, look at everything that's come and gone
D                  D                     A                  A
  Sometimes when I play my old six string I think about you wonder what went wrong



Chorus :
Bm                 A            D                       G
  Standing on your mamma's porch you told me that you'd wait forever
Bm             A           D                   G
  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 sixty-nine
                     D          D     A     A   (+riff)
It was the summer of sixty-nine 
D            D     A     A   (+riff)
Sixty-nine...
