Summer Of '69 Lyrics

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till my fingers bled
It was the summer of '69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Joey got married
I shoulda known we'd never get far
Oh 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

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 reckless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever

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 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

It was the summer of '69

Me and my baby in '69

News flash people!!!! "69" not about a year!!! Why does nobody ever get that. Saw an interview with Bryan where he talked about it. He was surprised when people thought he he meant 1969.

Nostalgia... and I was born in '89, but this song is immortal and speaks through the ages. Makes me wish I could go back in time to my high school years. Really makes me look at the decisions I've made, and to not regret them, but instead to embrace the consequences and learn from my mistakes, to hopefully arrive at the final destination of wisdom and strength only attained through personal hardship.

I may be young, born in 1996, but I know good music when I hear it. Bryan must've been one helluva rich guy with music like this... kinda makes me wish I was born earlier, so that I could see him live
