 Me and some guys from school  
 D5
Had a band and we tried real hard  
 A5
Jimmy quit and Jody got married

I shoulda known we'd never get far
 B5A5
 But when I look back now
 D5G5
 That summer seemed to last forever
 B5A5
 And if I had the choice
 D5G5
 Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
B5 A5~
Those were the best days of my life

D5, A5, D5, A5
 D5A5
 Ain't no use in complainin' 
 D5
When you got a job to do 
 A5
Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in

And that's when I met you - yeah
 B5A5
 Standin' on your mama's porch
 D5G5
 You told me that you'd wait forever
 B5A5
 Oh and when you held my hand
 D5G5
 I knew that it was now or never
B5 A5~ D5, A5
Those were the best days of my life
 D5A5
Oh yeah, back in the summer of 69    
 F5A#5
 Yeah, we were killin' time
 C5
 We were young and restless
 A#5
 We needed to unwind
 F5A#5C5
 I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no...

 D5A5
 And now the times are a-changin'
 D5
Look at everything that's come and gone
 A5
Every time I play that old six string

I think about ya'n wonder what went wrong
 B5A5
 Standin' on your mama's porch, that's right
 D5G5
 You told me we'd would last forever
 B5A5
 Oh the way you held my hand
 D5G5
 I knew that it was now or never
B5 A5~
Those were the best days of my life

D5, A5, D5, A5, D5, A5, D5, A5, D5, A5, D5, A5

A5~
