I got my first real six-string
Played it till my fingers bled

Had a band and we tried real hard
Shoulda known, we'd never get far
Oh when I look back now
And if I had the choice
Those were the best days of my life
Ain't no use in complainin'
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in

You told me that you'd wait forever
I knew that it was now or never

Back in the summer of '69

We were young and restless
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no
And now the times are changin'
Sometimes when I play that old six-string

You told me it would last forever
I knew that it was now or never

Back in the summer of '69
It was the summer of '69, oh yeah
