Song: Summer Of '69
Artist: MxPx
Written By: Bryan Adams
Tabbed by: Mike C.


This is MxPx's version of "Summer of '69".. They just moved it one full step 
back from Bryan Adams Version.. It's nothing difficult.. They changed the 
key from "D" to "C"....my words might be a lil off, cuz MxPx did change some 
of the words, but the music is right.. 


EVERYTHING IS BAR CHORDS!

C 

C
I got my first real six-string.

G
Bought it at a five and dime.

C
Played it till my fingers bled,

G
Was the summer of 69'

C
Me and some guys from school.

G
Had a band and we tried real hard.

C
Jimmy quit, Joey Got married,

G
Should've known We'd never get far.


             CHORUS
*************************************************
Am         G
Oh, when i look back now

C                 F
The summer seemed to last forever.

Am        G
And If I had the choice

C                 F
yeah if there was one I'd be there

Am               G (Hold out Single Stroke)
Those were the best days of my life.
************************************************


C

G


C
Aint no use in complainin'

G
When you got a job to do.

C
Spend my evenings down at the drive in

G
And that's when I met you.


             CHORUS
*************************************************
Am               G
Standing on your daddy's Porch

C                     F
You told me that you'd wait forever

Am            G
Oh, then you held my hand

C                  F          
I knew that it was now or never.

Am              G (Hold Out Single Stroke)
Those were the best days of my life.
*************************************************

                    BRIDGE
--------------------------------------------------
Eb           Bb
we were killing time

Ab
We were young and restless

Bb
We needed to unwind

Eb        Bb                      Bb               C    G
I guess nothin' could last forever, forever NO!
-------------------------------------------------

C

G


C            
And now the times are changin'

G
Look at everything that's come and gone.

C
Sometimes when I play that old six string

G
I think about you and wonder what went wrong.


                   CHORUS
*************************************************
Am               G
Standing on your daddy's Porch

C                     F
You told me that you'd wait forever

Am            G
Oh, then you held my hand

C                  F          
I knew that it was now or never.

Am              G 
Those were the best days of my life.
*************************************************

Then just repeat C and G until the End.. I think whoever did the bass tab needs to 
re-think it.. This is perfect.. I promise...

A C should be in the end of the last line of the chorus, other parts sounds pretty awkward as well...
