Summer of '69
Bryan Adams Lyrics


I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69

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 '69, 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 '69, oh
It was the summer of '69, oh, yeah
Me and my baby in '69, oh
It was the summer
The summer, the summer of '69, yeah

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
It was the summer of '69
It was the summer of '69
Met my baby in '69
That's the whole story right there!
It was the summer
It was the summer
Yeah, summer of '69

Dear Oz Man...
Yes,everything moved slowly...getting a letter written
by hand that took seven days
from a lover was so special,
Waiting for film to be developed so the pictures taken with a Kodak camera
would be treasured forever.
Watching TV programs and
believing that we would never
see our favorite ever again if
we didn't catch it at the
correct time & day.

You know a song is a classic when you get hit with nostalgia that you didn't experience yourself.

I miss those old days when people don't write annoying comments about nostalgia
It would be more nostalgic if there isn't any comments talking about nostalgia like can't I see a old song without the comment section talking about nostalgia

Met my husband in the "Summer of 69" married in 1971. We had 48-1/2 years married when he passed away. Love that we had 1969-2019 together. I miss him.
