Song: Summer of '69
Artist: MxPx
Written By: Bryan Adams

The last one I found here had some mistakes in both the chords and the
lyrics, I know this one isn't perfect, but I think it's better.  I also
added in comments about how to play this one.  The lyrics might be wrong
for MxPx's version, I have the lyrics to Bryans Version .

Verse1: 
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
John quit and Joey got married
G
I shoulda known we'd never get far

Chorus1: 
Am         G
Oh when I look back now
C                     F
that summer seemed to last forever
Am        G
And if I had the choice
C                 F
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Am              G
Those were the best days of my life
Verse2: 
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
Chorus2: 
Am                G
Standin' on your daddy's porch
C                     F
You told me you would wait forever
Am               G
Oh, and when you held my hand
C                  F
I knew that it was now or never
Am              G
Those were the best days of my life
G                     C       G
Back in the summer of '69

Bridge: 
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
Think about yeah wonder what went wrong

Chorus2: 
Am               G
Standing on your Daddy's porch
C                    F
You told me it would last forever
Am          G
The way you held my hand
C                  F
I knew that it was now or never
Am             G                     C, G
Those were the best days of my life
                       C     G
Back in the summer of '69
G                       C    G
Yeah, in the summer of '69
