Summer Of '69 Lyrics

Summer Of '69 (69年的夏天) - Studio Players

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 Jody 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 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 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
