Song Lyric Sunday: Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme is, Summer and this song just popped into my head! Have a great summer everybody! 🙂 🌞 🌞 🌞


I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five and dime
Played it til my fingers bled
Was the summer of ’69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we’d never get far
But when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya – I’d always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in complainin’
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin’s down at the drive-in
And that’s when I met you – ya

Standin’ on your mama’s porch
You told me that you’d wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ’69


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


And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six string
I think about ya’n wonder what went wrong

  1. Classic! There is one summer when I was a teenager that felt exactly like this. I wasn’t in a band, but just handing with friends and letting the time fly by without a care in the world. It’s a great memory. Thank you! 😉

      It’s always a fun song to hear! Your carefree time sounds like a lot of fun! 🙂 Thanks for hosting! Posting a theme was a great idea! 🙂

      • It got to a point where I was lost and couldn’t decide on a song every week. I think a theme gives a direction, and I have to say, today’s posts have been great! 😊

    This is definitely one of the ultimate summer songs. Also, Don Henley’s Boys of Summer.
