Watch “Summer of 69 (lyrics)- Bryan Adams” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 5
    I got my first real six-string
    Bought it at the five-and-dime
    Played it ’til my fingers bled
    Was the summer of sixty-nine

    Me and some guys from school
    Had a band and we tried real hard
    Jimmy quit, Jody got married
    I should’ve known we’d never get far

    Oh, when I look back now
    That summer seemed to last forever
    And if I had the choice
    Yeah, I’d always wanna be there
    Those were the best days of my life

    Ain’t no use in complainin’
    When you’ve got a job to do
    Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
    And that’s when I met you, yeah

    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 sixty-nine, oh

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

    Yeah

    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 that it’d last 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 sixty-nine, oh
    It was the summer of sixty-nine, oh, yeah
    Me and my baby in sixty-nine, oh
    It was the summer, the summer, the summer of sixty-nine, yeah
