Here it is!
Song: Summer of 69
Artist: MxPx (Magnified Plaid)
Album: On The Cover
Original Artist: Bryan Adams

 C
 I got my first real six-string
 G
 Bought it at the five and dime
 C
 Played it till my fingers bled
 G
 It was the summer of '69
 C
 Me and some guys from school
 G
 Had a band and we tried real hard
 C
 Jimmy quit and Joey got married
 G
 I shoulda known we'd never get far
 AG
 Oh when I look back now
 CF
 that summer seemed to last forever
 AG
 And if I had the choice
 CF
 Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
 AG
 Those were the best days of my life
 C
 Ain't no use in complaining
 G
 When you got a job to do
 C
 Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
 G
 And that's when I met you
 AG
 Standin' on your daddy's porch
 CF
 You told me that you'd wait forever
 AG
 Oh and when you held my hand
 CF
 I knew that it was now or never
 AG
 Those were the best days of my life
 GCG
 Back in the summer of '69  
 FC
 Man, we were killin time
 G
We were young and restless
 A
We needed to unwind
 FCGC
 I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no
G, C, G
 C
 And now the times are changing
 G
 Look at everything that's come and gone
 C
 Sometimes I play that old six-string
 G
 I think about ya wonder what went wrong
 AG
 Standing on your Daddy's porch
 CF
 You told me it would last forever
 AG
 The way you held my hand
 CF
 I knew that it was now or never
A G C, G
Those were the best days of my life
 CG
Back in the summer of '69
