Song: Summer of '69

 
Watch the video, listen to the song and complete the lyrics with verbs in the simple past.
 
 
I got my first real six-string
 it at the five and dime
Played it till my fingers
It  the summer of '69
 
Me and some guys from school
 a band and we  real hard
Jimmy quit and Joey  married
 should have known we'd never get far
 
Oh when I look back now
That summer  to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah I'd always want to be there
Those  the best days of my life
 
 Ain't no use in complaining
When you got a job to do
 my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I  you, yeah
 
Standing on your mama's porch
You  me that you'd wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I  that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of '69
 
Man we were killing time
We were young and restless
We  to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever, forever, no
 
And now the times are changing
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes I play that old six-string
Think about you
wonder what went wrong
 
Standing on your mama's porch
You told me that it'd last forever....
