"We were...."


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
[A]Oh when I [G]look back now
[C]that summer seemed to [F]last forever
[A]And if I [G]had the choice
[C]Yeah - I'd always [F]wanna be there
[A]Those were the [G]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
[A]Standin' on your [G]daddy's porch
[C]You told me that you'd [F]wait forever
[A]Oh and when you [G]held my hand
[C]I knew that it was [F]now or never
[A]Those were the [G]best days of my life
[G]Back in the summer of [C]'69 [G]
[F]Man, we were [C]killin time
We were [G]young and restless
We [A]needed to unwind
[F]I guess [C]nothin' can last for[G]ever - forever, [C]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
[A]Standing on your [G]Daddy's porch
[C]You told me it would [F]last forever
[A]The way you [G]held my hand
[C]I knew that it was [F]now or never
A G C, G
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of '[C]69[G]
