I got my first real six string, bought it at the five & dime

Played it ‘til my fingers bled, it was the summer of sixty-nine

Me and some guys from school had a band and we tried real hard

Jimmy quit and Jody got married, shoulda known we'd never get far

Bm Bm A A D D G G
Oh when I look back now that summer seemed to last forever

Spent my evenings down at the drive in and that's when I met you

Standing on your mamma's porch you told me that you'd wait forever

Those were the best days of my life, oh yeah

Back in the summer of sixty-nine

I guess nothing can last forever, forever

Standing on your mamma's porch you told me that you'd wait forever
