BOWLING FOR SOUP lyrics : "sumer of '69"

I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five and dime
Played it 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

But when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice

Ya - 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 - ya

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
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 ya'n wonder what went wrong


Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me it would last forever

Oh the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life


Back in the summer of '69
