  i got my first real six string - bought it at the five & dime
D                                 A
  played it til my fingers bled - was the summer of '69
D                              A
  me and some guys from school had a band and we tried real hard
D                                   A
  jimmy quit and jody got married - shoulda known we'd never get far

Bm          A               D                     G
  oh when i look back now - that summer seemed to last for ever
Bm         A                D               G
  and if i had the choice - yeah i'd always wanna be there
Bm               A               D   A
  those were the best days of my life

  ain't no use complaining - when ya gotta job to do
  spent my evenings down at the drive in - and that's when i met you - ya
  standing on your mamma's porch - you told me that you'd wait forever
  and when i held your hand - i knew that it was now or never
  those were the best days of my life - back in the summer of '69

F             Bb
  man we were killin' time
          C                       Bb
  we were young and reckless - we needed to unwind
F         Bb                  C
  i guess nothing can last forever...


  and now the times are changin'
  look at everything that's come and gone
  sometimes when i play my old six string
  i think about you wonder what went wrong
