Lyrics

play I got my first real six-string
play Bought it at the five-and-dime
play Played it 'til my fingers bled
play Was the summer of sixty-nine

play Me and some guys from school
play Had a band and we tried real hard
play Jimmy quit, Jody got married
play I should've known we'd never get far

play Oh, when I look back now
play That summer seemed to last forever
play And if I had the choice
play Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
play Those were the best days of my life

play Ain't no use in complainin'
play When you've got a job to do
play Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
play And that's when I met you, yeah

play Standin' on your mama's porch
play You told me that you'd wait forever
play Oh, and when you held my hand
play I knew that it was now or never
play Those were the best days of my life

play Oh, yeah
play Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh

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

play Yeah

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

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

play Oh, yeah
play Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh
play It was the summer of sixty-nine, oh, yeah
play Me and my baby in sixty-nine, oh
play It was the summer, the summer,
play the summer of sixty-nine, yeah

meaning Meaning

I think [“Summer of ’69” is] timeless because it’s about making love in the summertime. There is a slight misconception it’s about a year, but it’s not. “69” has nothing to do about a year, it has to do with a sexual position…At the end of the song, the lyric says that it’s me and my baby in a 69. You’d have to be pretty thick in the ears if you couldn’t get that lyric.
