Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I got my first real six-string
I bought it at the five-and-dime
I played it 'til my fingers bled
It was the summer of '69

Four ladies promenade one time around
Swing the girl, promenade forever
Those were the best days of my life


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All the heads square thru 4 hands around there
Out to the corner now you dosado
Touch 1/4, scoot back around there
Boy run right and do the right & left thru go
Everybody slide thru, pass thru, make a u-turn back
Swing the girl, promenade forever
Those were the best days of my life


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever


Jimmy quit and Jody got married
It was the summer of '69


TAG

Swing your girl
Back in the summer of '69
Back in the summer of '69

Summer Of '69
 
 

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it til my fingers bled
It 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

Oh 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

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 wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your Mama's porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh the way 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
Me and my baby in a '69...

Lyrics by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance.
Recorded by Bryan Adams.
