[Verse 1]

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


[Verse 2]

D
    Me and some guys from school
A
    Had a band and we tried real hard
D
    Jimmy quit, Joey got married
A
    I shoulda known we'd never get far

[Chorus 1]
Bm               A
       Oh when I look back now
D                          G
       That summer seem to last forever
Bm              A
       And if I had the choice
D                      G
       Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Bm                     A
        Those were the best days of my life

DA


[Verse 3]

D
       Ain't no use in complainin'
A
       When you got a job to do
D
        Spent my evenin's down at the drive in
A
       And that's when I met you

[Chorus 2]


Bm                      A 
       Standin' on your mama's porch
D                             G
       You told me that you'd wait forever
Bm                     A
       Oh and when you held my hand
D                         G
       I knew that it was now or never
Bm                    A
       Those were the best days of my life
D                    A                         DA     
     (Oh yeah)           Back in the summer of 69’


[Bridge]

F                   Bb
        Man we were killin' time
        C
We were young and restless
   Bb
We needed to unwind
F                Bb                  C                      
         I guess nothin' can last forever, forever no


[Verse 4]

DA    DA    

D
      And now the times are changin'
A
      Look at everything that's come and gone
D
      Somethimes when I play that old six-string
A
      I think about you wonder what went wrong


[Chorus 3]

Bm                      A
       Standin' on your mama's porch
D                           G
       You told me it would last forever
Bm                     A
       Oh and when you held my hand
D                         G
       I knew that it was now or never
Bm                    A
       Those were the best days of my life


[Outro]

D                     A                        DA     
     (Oh yeah)           Back in the summer of 69’

D – A            (All the way to the end)

Chords are great so its not a correction, but for those playing along the verse should go like this…

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

Thanks for giving us a classic!!!
